Fiji Airways men’s 7s coach Gareth Baber says topping the error list this season doesn’t mean the national side hasn’t been improving on its discipline.
This after Fiji received 20 yellow cards out of the 48 games played this season.
Baber says there are few aspects to consider when looking at the error count in a game.
“I see what you call a careless error, somebody who hasn’t paid attention to what they doing with the ball if they get it wrong, I see what we call a forced error, you try and do something and you are under pressure and that happens and then what I see is like a positive error, which is in Fiji the biggest one. We are always looking for those avenues by which we could offload and play high-risk games and most of our errors will be around that.”
Looking at this years season, the national side has won 40 games out of 48, scored 1257 points plus 197 tries, missed an average of 7.04 percent of tackles per match and conceded an average of 0.29 percent of free-kicks in a game.
Fiji’s next stop is the London 7s where they’re pooled with New Zealand, Argentina and Scotland and the tournament will be held from the 2nd to the 4th of next month.
