The side lost to Australia 28-5 in the last pool match.

"Our Fijiana girls played against some bigger girls in the competition and I think they did well and Australia was a tough side," Tanivula said.

Tanivula said their focus was on building the team for the HSBC World Sevens Series with would start in Dubai.

"We have a few tournaments to build our team for the series and there are a lot of elements which come in, such as fitness," he said.

"How much the girls adhere to the instruction and follow the game plan and if could get that right then we could get a good team."
