Fiji sevens coach Gareth Baber says they are still searching for consistency on the World Series, after their worst finish of the season in Singapore saw their hopes of a third straight title slip further away.
After the highs of winning in Hong Kong, Fiji were upset 24-19 by the United States in the Cup quarter finals in Singapore before series leaders South Africa prevailed 19-14 in their fifth place semi final encounter.
“We’ve just got to learn to be a little bit more consistent,” said Baber.
“We came up against a good American side in the quarter final and they reacted far better than we did and in the South Africa game going down to six men hurt us badly.
“We’re not despondent about the way it’s happened. We’re disappointed obviously that we couldn’t replicate the performance and go for a double but we got a lot out of the two weeks and certainly the Hong Kong performance – the semi final, final – was a big high for us.”.
