Fiji Airways Men’s 7's coach Gareth Baber admits there is plenty of work to do with his side in third place after two legs of the 2017-2018 World 7's Series.
Fiji finished fourth in the opening round in Dubai and fifth a week later in Cape Town.
Baber says they had a bad loss against Canada in the pool stages in Cape Town which took a bit of a shine off the week but generally they moved in the right direction.
He says that he has blooded some new players which is good and is obviously experience in a huge element.
Fiji have now gone past five World Series tournaments without making a final and Baber says the competition from other countries was only getting tougher.
Baber says two or three errors in key areas are going to cost a lot and that's probably where they struggled a little bit, certainly against Canada.
He says the Fiji team have been in recovery mode since returning from South Africa and will work on their conditioning next week.
The squad will then take a break over the Christmas period to spend time with friends and family before resuming training ahead of the next leg in Sydney in six weeks time.Listen to the latest news on our 5 radio stations Legend FM, Viti FM, Radio Sargam, FM96 and Navtarang.
