Forwards to play a vital role against Italy test match
November 10, 2017 11:12 pm
The Fiji Airways Flying Fijians forwards will play a vital role against Italy in its first autumn test match tomorrow.
Much will depend on the performance of their forwards, however if they can stand up to the physicality of their counterparts, and provide their backs with quality ball, then they could upset their hosts.
Coach John McKee believes Jale Vatubua, who plays for Pau in the Top 14, is ready to kick on after making his Test debut against Australia earlier this year.
Players like Kini Murimurivalu, Josua Tuisova, Asaeli Tikoirotuma and Vatubua are all capable of wreaking havoc on attack.
Fiji plays Italy at 3am tomorrow.
