Fiji looking to continue unbeaten run at home
June 16, 2017 6:23 pm
The Vodafone Flying Fijians will be looking to register its first win of the year on home soil when they face Italy in Suva today.
The Akapusi Qera captained team made a reasonable start to the year playing some good rugby in the 37-14 loss to Australia last week.
Coach, John McKee, has named a strong team to face Italy as Fiji looks to continue with the unbeaten run against the Azzuri’s at home.
Fiji Rugby Union Chief Executive John O’Connor says today’s attendance at the grounds could be a decisive factor in regards to which teams Fiji will host next year.
“Next year’s schedules are not out yet. However, if we are to host this big teams we need the seats to be full. It is very costly getting these games and now its on the fans to show us how much they want to see our national side play tier one nations.”
Fiji takes on Italy at 2.30pm today at ANZ Stadium and you can catch a live commentary on Radio Fiji One.
