Fijian Latui ready for Kagifa Samoa

The Swire Shipping Fijian Warriors is adapting well ahead of their first Global Rapid Rugby match next week.
Coach Senirusi Seruvakula says he is excited about the new form of competition.
Global Rapid Rugby was introduced last year and is fast-paced rugby, played for only 70 minutes.
The time limit for a scrum is 1 minute and 45 seconds for lineouts.
A nine points ‘power try’ is given for attacks launched within 22 meters of the scoring team’s own try line.
Seruvakula says the Fijian Latui are ready for their match.
“It’s called Global Rapid Rugby so it means its a fast rugby and there’s a lot of changes in the rules and it’s a 35 minutes a side. There are some rules like you’re not allowed to kick from the 22 and go out, and the changes are rolling sub. It’s really good for us and it’s a really fast game.”
Flying Fijians Mosese Voka, Mesulame Dolokoto, and Frank Lomani are part of the Fijian Latui side.
The Latui will play Kagifa Samoa next Saturday at Churchill Park in Lautoka.
