The Flying Fijians have touched on a few specific areas during their training sessions in Japan with the Toyota Shoki club.
Head Coach John McKee says the team will head to the Team camp today in Abashiri and he is really pleased with the work rate and effort shown by the players.
‘Just working on specifics field position aspects of the game hoping to get all the players to get the good game time and really test our system under some pressure’.
The past few days have been quite emotional for former Flying Fijians flanker Setareki Tawake and his family.
Many rugby fans in Fiji remember Tawake very well as his 1999 Rugby World Cup try against France was disallowed by then referee Paddy Obrien.
The Kavala villager from Kadavu has been living in Japan for the last 14 years and says this is quite a memorable moment for him and his family.
Tawake is also the Flying Fijians Liason Officer in Japan.
Fiji will take on the Wallabies next Saturday.
