Maori expecting tough challenge from Flying Fijians

July 8, 2015 5:12 am

The Maori All Blacks team is looking forward to a tough battle as they take on the Vodafone Flying Fijians, this week.

The team arrived in the country today laced with some big names.

Back to play in the country after a span of 19 years, Maori All Blacks Coach, Colin Cooper says it was tough to assemble a team of talented players.

“It hasn’t been easy with obviously two New Zealand teams in the Super Final. So we got the boys in on Friday that went in that Final and there’s about fourteen that came in after. So hasn’t been the best preparation but just happy to be here. And we have some quality young players and some players that have been in the Maori team for the past couple of years.”

The Maori All Blacks take on the Flying Fijians at 3pm at the ANZ Stadium in Suva, this Saturday.

You can catch a live commentary of the game on BULA FM with the voice of rugby, Graham Eden.
