The Fiji Airways Flying Fijians have arrived at their base camp for the Rugby World Cup in Abashiri City, Japan.
The team received an official welcoming ceremony from the Mayor of Abashiri and fans, as they will be hosting our boys ahead of their first game against the Wallabies.
“We traveled yesterday because today is back to training.The conditions are beautiful here, cooler than down south, nice and sunny and very pristine. The training field to train on has really motivated the boys to train today”.
The Flying Fijians World Cup debutants received their caps.
Coach John Mckee says as game day edges closer, the objective now is to brush up on their game plan that could catch the Wallabies by surprise.
He adds that training has intensified and the boys are putting in double the work effort.
“Another days training tomorrow morning. It will be quite a physical training session for the boys. They will also go through some of the requirements from RWC tomorrow afternoon. It will be another busy day tomorrow and preparations are going really well”.
The Flying Fijians will take on the Wallabies next Saturday at 4.45pm at the Sapporo Dome in Japan.
