All players available for England match
September 8, 2015 6:46 pm
All players in the Vodafone Flying Fijians squad will be available for selection for the match against England in the Rugby World Cup on Saturday week.
The team, which played Canada in a warm-up match on Monday, came through virtually unscathed.
Head coach John McKee says the players are focused and fighting for a spot in the starting team.
“Nothing to worry about. We are always precautionary in such games. Any player with a slight niggle is always going to come off. So we don’t expect anyone to be unavailable for the England game. Maybe one player that is of interest out there is Nikola Matawalu, who was outstanding in the first half. Just a small niggle to his upper thigh area but he will be fine and back in training in a few days.”
Meanwhile, the side will be welcomed to the World Cup tomorrow night (Fiji time) at the Hampton Court Palace.
The opening match of the tournament between Fiji-England will be played on September 19 at 7am.
