The Vodafone Flying Fijians are out to make the first rugby Test of the year at home memorable for its fans.
Fiji takes on Italy on Saturday in Suva and this will be the 11th time they face off, with both teams having recorded five wins a piece so far.
However, history favors the Flying Fijians as they have won all four games played in Fiji.
National coach, John McKee, says his players are raring to take the field in front of the home fans for the first time this year.
“Certainly, the players are feeling good to be back home. They are ready for a tough match. It would be good to see the fans turn out in numbers and support the boys at Suva’s ANZ Stadium.”
The match kicks off at 2.30pm on Saturday at the ANZ Stadium and you can catch a live commentary on Radio Fiji One.
