7s surprise arrival for Sau

THE Fiji Airways Fiji 7s team received an overwhelming support at the Nadi International Airport yesterday as a special cake was present to birthday boy Eroni Sau upon arrival.

Sau, who hails from Marou Village on the island of Naviti in the Yasawa Group, turned 28.

Fiji coach Gareth Baber said they worked extremely hard last weekend.

"To overcome Australia, Samoa, New Zealand and South Africa in four games was quite special," Baber said.

"To come away with a gold medal from New Zealand was good. We let ourselves down on the other weekend. So we put a bit of more work. It is more about the focus.

"We did some good stuff in Sydney but we let ourselves down in two games. We could not deal with it mentally but setbacks happen in the game.

"What was pleasing in our games in New Zealand was that it wasn't going our way but we never shied away from the challenge and got the game in the last seconds.

"That's the nature of the 7s game and there are key elements to finish it off."
