Flying Fijians against Manu Samoa

Fiji Airways Flying Fijians coach John McKee has stressed if they have to play the off‑load game, they firstly need to win the collision game.

This is after Fiji’s poor performance against Samoa last Saturday.

McKee says they didn't build enough phases and probably tried to offload too many times but this did not connect properly with some players.

He says there were some areas the players could have worked hard on and this is where they will start when they'll return after naming his 31 member squad to the Rugby World Cup this Friday.

Fiji will be playing Tonga on August 31st before they will take on Australia in their first game in the Rugby World Cup on the 21st of next month.

Fiji is pooled with Australia, Wales, Uruguay and Georgia.

The Rugby World Cup will begin from the 20th of next month to the 2nd of November.

People can also meet the Flying Fijians squad to the World Cup this Saturday at Albert Park from 8.50am to 11am.
