Clermont fullback Setariki Tuicuvu says he would not want to repeat what happened last year against Scotland where he only played for the first 20 minutes.
Tuicuvu says he was crushed when he was removed from the field due to an injury since it was his first game for Fiji.
He says given the chance to start at fullback tomorrow, he will not disappoint his fans and the Fiji rugby family as he is also vying for a spot in the team to the Rugby World Cup.
Meanwhile, Flying Fijians coach John McKee says Tuicuvu will make his second appearance for Fiji after earning his first cap against Scotland in November last year.
McKee says Tuicuvu is a young player on the way up and has had some really good match time with his season in Clermont.
McKee will also be testing a new combinations in the midfield patterning Levani Botia and Semi Radradra in the centres.
