Flying Fijians Coach John McKee says there are two key areas that need a lot of work in order for Fiji to put up a better performance at the next Rugby World Cup.
Speaking after their 29-17 loss to Wales, Coach McKee says improvement in communication will help the team reach closer to their goals.
Our communications in working with all our overseas based players to make sure they are really ready for us when they come to play for us in the international window. We have to focus a bit more locally especially on our domestic academies and leading into the Fiji Warriors A team and with the Drua playing in the Australian NRC they are already important parts of the whole pathway. You saw some players who come from Fiji who come play very well in the likes of Frank Lomani, he has come through our pathways at home.
McKee says it’s difficult because every world cup the competition continues to get harder.
He says in 2015 the team thought they did okay but they could have done better.
We are sort of in the same position because the whole competition gets tougher so international rugby is a competitive world.
Fiji in the last Rugby World Cup lost to Wales in pool play 23-13.
Wales after their triumph over Fiji have booked a spot in the RWC quarter final.
