Flying Fijians to train with Georgia
September 8, 2015 12:37 am
The Vodafone Flying Fijians will be holding a scrimmage session with Georgia later tonight (Fiji time), as the countdown to the Rugby World Cup continues.
Fiji beat Canada 47-18 in a warm-up match yesterday, and had a recovery session this morning.
Head coach John McKee says the team is clear of major injuries, and halfback Nikola Matawalu should be back training in the next few days, after copping an injury against Canada.
He adds, the session with Georgia is mainly targeted for the forwards.
“Tomorrow (tonight), we have an opposed unit session against Georgia. It will be very beneficial for us. Again particularly for our forwards who will be concentrating on scrums and line outs and particularly the maul defence and that will be a very important session for us. In the afternoon, we will be doing some team building activities at the Army Base. The British Army guys will be taking us for some activities there.”
The team will move camp to its base on Thursday from Aldershot to the London Irish Rugby Club.
Meanwhile, the side will be welcomed to the World Cup on Thursday night (Fiji time) at the Hampton Court Palace.
The opening match of the tournament between Fiji-England will be played on September 19 at 7am.
