THE Fiji Airways Barbarians bowed out in the pool stages after finishing third behind Japan in their Pool B standings after the first day of the competition at the Silicon Valley Sevens, USA.

It was a disappointing campaign for the Barbarians, first suffering a thrashing 29-0 to Australia during their first pool match.

They drew 26-all with Japan in their second pool match, but later defeated China 35-15 in their final pool match.

Japan and Fiji drew at six points each with their total points, but the "Cherry Blossoms" edged Rio Olympics gold medallists in the points differential.

Australia topped their pool winning all their games, while Fiji and Japan both won against China then each drew and both lost to the table leaders.

Hosts USA topped pool C, followed by Chile finishing second with seven points, two points ahead of New Zealand, while Samoa currently leads pool A with eight points followed by England is at six points.

The Fijian team have lost in three separate occasions to Australia this year.
