Fiji Airways Men’s National 7s team Coach Gareth Baber says he would love to take credit for the players' ability to offload the ball in difficult situations but admits it's just how rugby is played in Fiji.

Fiji are currently preparing to retain their World 7s Series title which kicks off at the Dubai 7s this Sunday followed by the Cape Town 7s next week.

Fiji have only managed two Dubai 7s wins which were in 2013 and 2015 since its introduction in 1999 while they have been runner ups for a record six times.

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

Fiji’s first pool match is against Japan at 4.02am this 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 this Saturday.

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