Flying Fijians ready to battle France
November 23, 2018 11:30 pm
The Fiji Airways Flying Fijians rugby team believe it can knock down France and come out victorious in Paris in its rugby test tomorrow morning.
After opening their Northern Tour with defeat in Scotland, Fiji bounced back with a resounding victory against Uruguay last weekend.
Radio NZ reports, Coach John McKee says Bordeaux star Semi Radradra is one of eight players in Fiji’s starting line-up that play their club rugby in France that helps their preparation.
“A lot of the players play against these players, the French players, regularly through the (Top 14) competition so they know their opposition well. We know we’ve got a big challenge in front of us but we’ve really put in some good work over two weeks and with this week’s preparation we really want to be up for the challenge.”
Fiji plays France at 9am tomorrow.
Meanwhile in other autumn tests, All Blacks takes on Italy at 3am tomorrow.
England takes on Australia at 4am tomorrow while Wales will battle South Africa at 6.20am.
You can watch both the matches live on FBC TV.
