Fiji Airways Flying Fijians Coach John McKee says they are working on improving their defence around the breakdowns.

McKee says they have been monitoring Wales closely and one of things they have found out is that they are a strong side in the breakdowns.

He says this can be evident in their match against the Wallabies where they had a lot of turnovers.

The Flying Fijians coach says this will be a critical area for them which is why they have been working on the continuity of the ball.

A win for Fiji would guarantee them third place in Pool D and also an automatic qualification for the 2023 Rugby World Cup in France.

Fiji will face Wales at 9.45pm tomorrow.
