BEN Ryan is focused on Fiji's opening pool clash against Argentina at the HSBC Sevens World Series tournament in Glasgow tonight.

The Vodafone Fiji sevens coach will guide the national team against the Pumas at 9.30pm at Scotstoun Stadium.

Fiji will then face Kenya at 12.36 and Wales at 3.47 in its final pool match on Sunday morning.

Ryan said they would take each game at a time.

"We are grouped in a hard pool," he said.

"We're not looking beyond getting game one right versus Argentina."

Earlier in the week, Fiji played a scrimmage sessions against the United States and Canada where Ryan wanted to test his set piece moves and defence structure.

He said he wanted to end the final two tournaments on a high note.

Ryan said the challenge would be getting Fiji to play its expansive rugby game.

"I'm looking forward to get into the last two tournaments now. We have some good supporters including the two Fijian boys (Nikola Matawalu and Jerry Yanuyanutawa) at Glasgow Warriors, we looking forward to a terrific game at Glasgow."

In his first season as sevens coach for Fiji, Ryan has won two tournaments in Tokyo and Dubai, finished plate winners at Australia and South Africa, won bowl at the United States tournament and finished third at Wellington and Hong Kong.
