What we can control is how we perform: McKee

The stage is set for Fiji’s last Rugby World Cup pool match against Wales and the team knows what this game means to Fijians.
A hard and fastpitch is what the Flying Fijians like and tonight’s venue in Oita, Japan will offer them just that.
The temperature has dropped and it is a little less humid which will be good for the game according to Coach John McKee.
When asked about managing the team’s expectations with qualification to the playoffs out of their hands, Coach McKee says they will try to perform to their best tonight.
‘There are a lot of periphery things going on but that’s not the focus for the players. The players are very much focused on their performance. As players and as a team, what we can control is how we perform and we will look for our top performance’.
Captain Dominiko Waqaniburotu who was one of the players that played Wales in the 2015 World Cup says they need to focus on their game plan.
“Rugby is interesting in that way. At the moment, we are just focused on what we need to do and all the little results on the outside, We cant only worry about that we just need to worry about ourselves”.
Fiji’s only test victory against Wales was at the 2007 World Cup and tonight’s clash in Oita will be the fourth time in a row the two met.
Meanwhile, Argentina is currently playing USA while Scotland takes on Russia at 7:15 tonight before Fiji plays Wales at 9:45 pm
