Flying Fijians expect physical Tonga onslaught
July 15, 2015 12:18 am
The Vodafone Flying Fijians rugby side expects a tough physical battle up front against Tonga in the Pacific Nations Cup on Saturday.
Fiji coach John McKee expects the same approach from Tonga in Suva but says his side has enough tricks up their sleeves to counter the Ikale Tahi.
“We know Tonga will be a very physical side. They will try to batter us down with a lot of close quarter play, a lot of pick-and-go’s. They really like that style of play. We expect a much tougher game than last year. Looking at their squad, they’re bringing a stronger squad then they did last year.”
McKee will announce his squad for the Tonga clash tomorrow, with Vereniki Goneva expected to replace the injured Akapusi Qera as captain.
The Flying Fijians will take on Tonga at 3pm on Saturday at the ANZ Stadium and you can catch a live commentary on BULA FM with the voice of rugby, Graham Eden.
