Team will get better: McKee

July 12, 2015 6:53 pm

Vodafone Flying Fijians John McKee believes the side will only get better from their 27-26 loss to the Maori All Blacks over the weekend.

McKee says the match provide the perfect build-up that the players needed in preparation for the Pacific Nations Cup opening match against Tonga this weekend.

“For me, we have been together for a week. It’s been very good progress. It is very disappointing that we lost the game but this is our first outing for the year; we are going to get better from here. I think this team is going to get very well.”

The Flying Fijians will host Tonga at the ANZ Stadium in Suva at 3pm on Saturday.

McKee has named two new players in the 31-member squad for the Pacific Nations Cup in Naitasiri prop, Joeli Veitayaki and Clermont back-rower, Peceli Yato.

Seremaia Bai, Benito Masilevu and Napolioni Nalaga are among the players who have been named in the non-travelling reserves.
