Physical battle against Samoa: McKee
July 24, 2015 7:58 pm
The Vodafone Flying Fijians side is expecting another physical battle up front in their Pacific Nations Cup clash against Samoa today.
National coach, John McKee says Samoa will most probably opt to keep the ball in the hands of their giant forward pack to deny Fiji any possession but his side have prepared themselves well for this tactic.
“It’s been very motivating for the players to play their Pacific neighbors and we know of the great rivalry between Fiji and Samoa so there has been a lot of focus in camp this week on this game. Once again they will bring a physical game just as Tonga did last week but Samoa will try to move the ball wide a bit more while Tonga went quite the direct route with one pass of the ruck.”
The Flying Fijians versus Samoa match starts at 12 noon today.
