Good start

A POWERFUL performance from the Fiji Airways Fiji 7s team in the opening day of the Sydney 7s could well be the platform for a good finish to the three-day tournament.

Fiji dominated Samoa to win the battle of the South Seas Islanders 31-5.

Coach Gareth Baber said it was a tough match with a lot of physical hits. Baber said he was happy with their defence especially when they did not have the ball.

"I was happy with how we defended, our composure with the ball and the tries we scored, he said. "The other aspects of our game like the lineout and general play was also in top form today (yesterday).

Baber was happy with how Jasa Veremalua came in as a replacement and performed and also Eminoni Nasilasila in how he dictated play for the Fijians.

"Good signs and a good start and we are ready and can't wait for tomorrow (today)," Baber said.

Fiji will play Russia in their second game at 5.09pm today before taking on New Zealand at 8.42pm.
