Odds against Fiji
June 15, 2012 7:59 pm
This is not a full-strength Fijian line-up so Scotland to cruise by 18 – this is the prediction of most rugby pundits across the world with Fiji set to take on Scotland later today.
History favours Scotland at the moment with the Scots having won the last three encounters.
Fiji came closest in 2003 when Rupeni Caucau scored two sensational tries but the team lost 22-20 due to ill discipline.
Joji Rinakama, probably the most successful local coach believes Fiji can win this game.
He says Fiji has to keep possession and ensure they minimise Scotland’s ability to gain territory.
Scotland will be very tough up front so the boys have to be contrasted on every phase of the game during the scrum time and line out and rack situation and they have to be facility on their defence and good tackle. And they have to playing very smart game not drops ball minimise the mistakes and especially given away the penalties because Scotland got a very good kicker.
Fans today will also get to witness a new war chant by the Flying Fijians.
Fiji goes head on against the Scots at 2pm at Churchill Park.
