McKee sets target for November test
November 4, 2018 11:04 pm
Fiji Airways Flying Fijians Coach John McKee says the November test is a chance for them to prove themselves and set a good platform towards the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan.
McKee told Scotsman.com that he is not only targeting the tier one scalp on the road but he is also using this tour to give greater depth to his squad across the board.
“It’s a very important November tour for us, it’s important that we get some good results away from home and with also one eye towards RWC19. This is our last assembly before out World Cup preparation when we get back together in July of next year. So, yeah, a very important Test match series for us.”
McKee says coaching Fiji for a full World Cup cycle, he knows that at this point, they are far ahead of where they were before the 2015 World Cup.
He adds they are in much better shape but they have a lot of work to do.
Meanwhile Fiji takes on Scotland at 2.30am Saturday.
