“They’ve got good handling skills, they try to get the ball to their wingers, they have some fast wingers so we’ve got be spot on in defence and not bite in and fall for their dummy runners. We have to be accurate in all areas, accurate in our kicking game.”

Rauluni adds Merewai Cumu, who is recovering in Melbourne after being concussed during the match against the Rebels is expected to return to the country in the next two days.
