The US is Fiji's big threat: Gollings

Fiji 7s Head Coach Ben Gollings believes the USA 7s team will pose a huge threat at this weekend's HSBC London 7s.
 
After drawn in Pool A with the USA, Wales and Spain, Gollings said Fiji will need to continue from their outstanding performance at the Toulouse 7s in France over the weekend. 
 
He says Fiji has faced the USA not only at Toulouse 7s but at the previous 7s and are fully aware of their intensity.
  
"It is yeah, we were just looking through the Pool last night."
 
"The US obviously, a big game and a close call in the quarterfinal."
 
"We've got them in the group."
 
"So it's going to be a challenge."
 
"For us, the harder the pool, the better it is in terms of the way in which we can focus ourselves and meet the challenge."
 
"It is a big thing to back up week after week, but it's a short travel week this week and that's a pool that we're very capable of winning and I know the crossovers pretty good as well."
 
"So we are. I'm pretty excited with how that's fallen and the challenge that lies ahead."
