Samoa doesn't see London sevens as Pacific Island grduge match

11:13 am on 25 May 2007

Samoa sevens coach, Dicky Tafua, says they're not looking at the London leg of the IRB World series as a showdown between them and Fiji.

Ten points separate the competition leader Fiji and Samoa with two rounds to go in the UK.

Tafua says with so many other teams in contention its not realistic to see this weekend's tournament as a set too between two South Pacific sides.

New Zealand is third in the series, fourteen points behind Fiji.

The series will wind up in Edinburgh the following weekend.
