The Fiji Airways Flying Fijians side will have 12 weeks of camp from July to prepare for the World Cup in Japan next year.

Flying Fijians coach John McKee says they are hoping to play against nine teams before the World Cup.

“We have got a very much match base program in the lead up to the 2019 World Cup. The players will start to assemble here in early July. We have got a seven game match program across July and August and leading into September before we depart for Japan.”

He says the team will take part in the Pacific Nations Cup which includes Samoa, Tonga, Japan, Canada and USA.

McKee adds they are currently in process of arranging four more test matches before October next year.
