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.
