Poor performance

Ravneel Sharma,Navua

The Fiji sevens team didn't perform to the level expected by the fans as they were bundled out of the Cup semi-final after losing to the Blitzboks 12-7.

To make it worse they went down 28-21 to England in the third place playoffs. The Fijian coach Gareth Baber needs to relook at his strategies before the Cape Town Sevens this week as the World Cup is in June next year and a poor start in the World Rugby Sevens Series could mean that Fiji is not in good hands ahead of World Cup preparations.

In comparison with Ben Ryan, the current coach is not performing as by now Ryan proved that Fiji was in good hands ahead of the Rio Olympics as they won tournaments with great play. I request Rugby House to relook at their strategy before we miss out at the World Cup Sevens tournament in June next year.
