The Vodafone Flying Fijians will play a warm-up match against Canada a week before their Rugby World Cup opening game against England in September.
Flying Fijians coach, John McKee says the match against Canada will play a crucial role in getting the players psyched up for what will be a tough World Cup campaign.
“That’s an important game for us so that’s the last weekend we can play before the World Cup and on the back of our fitness camp here in Fiji. It’s a very important game to prepare ourselves for the opening match.”
The warm-up match between the Flying Fijians and Canada will be held on September 6th with the World Cup match against England on September 18 at Twickenham Stadium.
Fiji’s other World Cup pool opponents are Australia, Wales and Uruguay.
Meanwhile the 40-member national extended squad will march in for a three-day camp in Suva on Wednesday.
