Play ruthless

THE Vodafone Fiji 7s coach Ben Ryan has asked the national players to be ruthless in their approach.

The Osea Kolinisau-skippered side struggled to beat Argentina 26-7 in its opening pool match at the Glasgow 7s in Scotland last night.

Fiji was to play Kenya and Wales in its final pool matches early this morning.

Against Argentina, Fiji started well scoring the opening try in the first minute of the play through Kolinisau before Emosi Mulevoro scored following some individual brilliance from Pio Tuwai for a 14-0 lead at the break.

At the breather, Ryan asked the players to be ruthless in their approach and support one another in attack.

Fiji scored first in the second spell through speedster Samisoni Viriviri before Argentina's Franco Sabato crossed the whitewash.

Leo Naikasau sealed the 26-7 win with a try in the dying stages of the match.

Fiji won the Glasgow 7s only once in 2009 when it defeated South Africa 20-19 in the final.
