Vodafone Flying Fijians coach John McKee says they have stepped up their preparations ahead of their second Rugby World Cup match against the Wallabies.

McKee says they have moved into their new team base in Wales and held their review meetings.

McKee also confirmed the team is injury free.

Meanwhile, the Wallabies are in a relaxed and comfortable position ahead of their opening World Cup match against Fiji.

This is according to Wallabies coach, Michael Cheika who says they are in a position to give themselves the chance to reach their full potential and be the first team to win the World Cup three times.

Cheika says right now they only have eyes for Fiji and the squad is shaping up for their first match.

Former Wallabies captain George Gregan believes Australia will be threatening in the World Cup if they have a full understanding of what is their best line‑up.

The Wallabies last won the World Cup 16 years ago.

Australia and Fiji have played each other 18 times. Australia has won 16 of those games.

Fiji beat Australia 17‑15 in 1952 and 18‑16 in 1954.

The Wallabies and the Flying Fijians last met in 2010 and Australia won that match 49‑3.

Fiji will play Australia at 3.45am Thursday at the Millennium Stadium in Wales.
