Update: 12:45PM VODAFONE Fiji 7s coach Ben Ryan has warned the players to lift the standard of play in the Tokyo 7s quarter-final today in Japan.

Fiji will face Kenya at 1.50pm.

In the other cup quarters, series leader New Zealand takes on Australia at 1.28pm, England will play Canada at 2.12pm and South Africa faces USA at 2.34pm.

After a lacklustre performance in the opening two pool matches against France (22-19) and USA (19-19), the Osea Kolinisau-skippered side thrashed Samoa 33-7 in the final pool match last night.

"He (Ryan) told us we weren't playing to our usual standards, we weren't relaxed. We needed to win our game because everything was on the line for us," Kolinisau told IRB.

"Especially the tournament in Tokyo, and the Series points. Tokyo is a very important stage for us. We need to win this in order to keep our hopes of the Series alive."
