Nadolo sizes up cousin
September 21, 2015 12:58 am
The Vodafone Flying Fijians have settled down in Wales as they prepare for the second Rugby World Cup pool match against Australia.
The team had a closed training session in Swansea today, away from the prying eyes of the media as well as the public.
While there was no media activity today, one player who is eagerly waiting the match is wing Nemani Nadolo, who is preparing to line up opposite his cousin and Wallabies centre, Tevita Kuridrani.
Nadolo says although he is looking forward to taking on his cousin, a win against Australia is the main priority.
“We will catch up in Wales, either before or after the game so I look forward to some family time with him but I guess I will take care of business right now and that is the Wallabies.”
Fiji meets Australia at 3:45am on Thursday at Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.
You can watch all the World Cup matches live on FBC TV and radio commentaries of Fiji’s games will air on Bula FM and Radio Fiji One.
Meanwhile England’s Sam Burgess is ready to start his first World Cup match in the Pool A clash with Wales.
Coach Stuart Lancaster says he will consider reshuffling his side after six second-half replacements, including Burgess, made a big impact in the 35-11 victory over Fiji.
Lancaster is expected to name his team on Friday.
Dual-code England international Burgess has won three caps since making the switch last year from rugby league, where he had successful spells with the Bradford Bulls and South Sydney Rabbitohs.
