Fiji Airways Men's National Sevens Team Coach Gareth Baber says the match against Japan SDS provided a much tougher test than their first match against Niue.

Fiji beat Japan SDS 31-0 in their second pool match last night.

Napolioni Bolaca, Vilimoni Botitu, Aminiasi Tuimaba, Waisea Nacuqu, and Rusiate Matai all scored for Fiji in the win.

Baber says the team showed good decision making when they had the ball in hand and closed down space well considering the weather.

Fiji also beat Niue 57-0 in their first match.

Baber says the new players in the team such as Simione Kuruvoli, Rusiate Matai and Kavekini Tabu have displayed strong performances so far but there's still more to come from them.

He also say that Waisea Nacuqu has adapted well in his new role as captain and is leading by example despite not being a natural leader.

Fiji will play New Caledonia at 3.02pm today before they take on New Zealand in their last pool match at 7.26 tonight.
