June 20, 2012 5:03 am
It will be a big task for the Flying Fijians to beat the Ikale Tahi this Saturday at Churchill Park says Fiji sevens assistant coach Etuate Waqa.
Waqa says the battle would be up front and Fiji should control the set pieces.
“Especially in the scrums and line-outs and then we cannot indicate the game in the defence we got to learn to tackle and get up quickly and reform again or regroup especially with our bigger backs.”
Coach, Inoke Male will announce his 22 players on Thursday while medical staff will confirm tonight whether skipper, Netani Talei will be fit to play.
The live commentary of the Fiji-Tonga match which kicks off at 3.30pm on Saturday will air on Bula FM with the voice of rugby, Graham Eden.
