Wales Sevens head coach Paul John says he is pleased with elements of his side's performances, but is looking for greater consistency.
"There have been some up and downs again this weekend", said John. "We are pleased with our first two games against Hong Kong (35-12) and Spain (28-5), although we forced matters in the second half of the Spain match and could have got more tries to help go through as one of the best runners-up.
"Against South Africa, we lost a lot of possession and needed more composure because when we did keep the ball, our attacking game was good.
"We then produced a good performance against Argentina in our Bowl quarter-final on Day Three, but to lose to Canada when we had been 17-5 up with about five minutes to go was disappointing. Again, we tried to force possession, and gave away some silly points, although Canada had a great competition, beating Argentina too, and then Japan in the final.
"However, we have already put any disappointment behind us and there are lots of positives to build on. We have New Zealand, Kenya and the Cook Islands in our Pool in Adelaide so another tough ask but our aim is always to get into the Cup quarter-finals and take it from there."
