Fiji Airways Men’s 7s Team Coach, Gareth Baber says they cannot make any promises now if they will win the tournament next month but he can guarantee that they will work with the intention of winning every tournament they play.

Baber says that he has been looking at the players’ performance not only during their game times but also their behavior off the field.

He says since Fiji had the highest number of yellow cards last season with 26, they will continue to educate players and analyze the players' discipline and giving data to players so they can improve.

Fiji will be departing for the Dubai 7s tomorrow, and Baber will name his 13 member squad in Dubai next week with each player’s performance and character key to their selection in what is a long and important calendar for the Fijian 7s.

Fiji is pooled with Japan, France and Argentina at the Dubai 7s.

Fiji’s first pool match is against Japan at 4.02am next Friday, Fiji will then take on Argentina at 10.04pm the same night and they will face France in their last match at 4.02am next Saturday.

The quarterfinals will be held at 8.14pm next Saturday, the semifinals will be at 12am next Sunday while the final will be at 4.02am next Sunday.

Barring any upsets, Fiji is likely to meet South Africa, England or Kenya in the quarter-final, they can face South Africa or France in the semi-final and is likely to meet New Zealand or the USA in the final of the Dubai 7s.
