Fiji sevens coach Ben Ryan believes his team is well-placed to make a run at the Wellington title but says they will need to cut their error rate in today's knockout rounds.
After starting slowly against Portugal and Wales, the Fijians outmuscled Australia 14-7 to finish unbeaten in Pool C and enact revenge on the team who had knocked them out of the past two tournaments.
Ben Ryan says the winning margin should have been bigger but was satisfied with their overall performance and looking forward to facing England in the quarter finals.
"They certainly will have learnt from the two defeats against us this year so [we need to] start again. [It's a] quarter final, we've got to hit the ground very hard, very quickly because there's a real opportunity for a great day for Fiji Sevens and if we start well in the quarter final then it's all up to us".
It wasn't such a happy day for the other Pacific teams, with Samoa and Papua New Guinea both finishing winless and bottom of their groups.
