NEW Zealand assistant coach, Tomasi Cama Junior had one advice to his players before their game against Fiji- stop the offloads.

Cama Jnr added their strategy was to ensure the game was played to their tempo.

He knew what Fiji could do if the match was played to their pace and tempo, which is what coach Gareth Baber always wants to create “chaos” in a match.

After a game riddled with mistakes and errors against Australia, Fiji picked up and put on a strong performance against New Zealand.

Baber admitted this and said both teams deserved the wins.

Ï think we going to focus, we are going to finalise our game tonight, we are going to work on what need to work on and what we need to improve.

“Obviously, USA has been playing well this year and we have played each other a few times this year.

“We know their strengths and their weaknesses.”
