Fiji Airways Flying Fijians coach, John McKee believes bonus points could have the final say on how far Fiji can potentially go into the 2019 Rugby World Cup. 

McKee says that the Flying Fijians can have no doubt that they need to be at their best if they are to gain an all‑important bonus‑point victory against Uruguay  with Georgia and Wales waiting in the wings.

McKee says in terms of Fiji’s game, they want to try to play the Fijian style and they do have good speed in the outside backs, talents that they hope to utilise.

He adds they expect Uruguay, as a South American team, to use their forward pack as a strength and they will have to be on top of our game, particularly around the scrums and our maul defence.

The two sides also met in the 2015 Rugby World Cup, where Fiji defeated Uruguay 47-15.

Fiji takes on Uruguay at 5.15pm today in their second pool match of the Rugby World Cup.
