The Vodafone Flying Fijians face a much tougher battle this weekend against Samoa in the Pacific Nations Cup, according to Coach John McKee.

McKee says it is going to be difficult to overcome a Samoan team that is fighting for World Cup qualification.

But he is confident with the group of players they have and the confidence that they have built from their success throughout the campaign so far will put them in a good place to be prepared for a top performance this weekend.

Tonga lead the PNC standings with five points from two matches, after earning a bonus point at the weekend for losing by seven points or less.

The Flying Fijians are in second place with four points.

They will retain the title with a win or draw at Apia Park.

A loss by seven points or less could also see the Pacific Nations Cup remain in Suva.

The Flying Fijians will take on Samoa at 1pm this Saturday at Apia Park in Samoa.
