THE Fiji sevens under-18 side have booked a spot in the semi-finals of the Youth Olympic Games in China.

Despite losing its deciding match against Kenya 17-12 yesterday, the young Fijian ruggers edged Japan on points difference to set up a replay against France when this edition went to press last night.

Kenya plays Argentina in the second semi-final.

Fiji lost to France 17-12 on Monday and 21-0 to Argentina during pool stages.

Vodafone Fiji 7s head coach Ben Ryan stated that Fiji needed to improve its game in the semi-final if it has to qualify for the gold medal playoff.

"We will need a big improvement in semi final," Ryan tweeted.

"Too much individual play and not enough effort off the ball. Need a proud Fijian display."

The team is guided by stand-in coach Sale Sorovaki.
