The Telecom Fijian Warriors have been told to keep their discipline if they are to beat Junior Japan in the second round of the World Rugby Pacific Challenge at the ANZ Stadium, Suva this 5.30pm today.

Speaking to SUNsports yesterday Warriors captain, Mosese Voka said, they are aware of the situation they are in and are wary of the unpredictable Japanese side.

“Our coach has made some positional changes due to injuries and also what he thinks is best in countering the Japanese side,” Voka said.

“We have lifted our preparations and we know it’s not easy going in as defending champions.”

Warriors head coach Senirusi Serukula has moved Voka to lock while Jiuta Taukubu plays at blindside flanker.

During the opening round, Junior Japan scored an upset 34-31 win over a strong Samoa A team.

Junior Japan coach Saturo Endo said, their players have matured over the years and have returned to Fiji stronger.

A player to watch is Tongan born- Junior Japan No.8 Tevita Tatafu who scored three tries against Samoa A last Friday.

The clash kicks-off at 5.30pm.
