Fiji Airways Men's National 7s Team Coach Gareth Baber says their victory over Japan SDS on the first day won't mean anything when the two sides face off in the final of the Oceania Men's International competition this afternoon.

Baber says Japan SDS are a dangerous side who are quick to utilize spaces on the field and they will have to be ready for them.

He says he is pleased with the performance of the side so far especially the new players who played New Zealand for the first time last night.

Fiji beat New Zealand 21-15.
