Fiji, Samoa seeking improvement at Cape Town 7s

World Series champions Fiji failed to qualify for the Cup quarter-finals in Dubai for the first time in the 21-year history of the global circuit, following a shock loss to Argentina in pool play.

Coach Gareth Baber acknowledged their ninth place finish was disappointing but said he expected a positive response this weekend.

"We've reviewed exactly why we feel we were not at the level that we needed to be and we've got to make sure that as we go through this week we're doing everything we possibly can to put that right and move in the direction of winning a tournament."
