The Fiji rugby union sevens coach, Josetaki Savou, believes his side can comeback despite finishing second to New Zealand for a second time in the World Series in South Africa.

Last week, Fiji loss 21-26 to New Zealand in Dubai, and in George South Africa at the weekend, lost 34-7.

Savou says they have a big break now and time to look at the mistakes ahead of the Wellington leg in February.

"This is a great for us and we've got more games especially Wellington is coming up and San Diego, so we are looking foward especially closing up the gaps with champion New Zealand."

Samoa failed to make the semifinals after losing 38-7 to Scotland in the quarters.
