Francesco Minto is looking forward to playing the Vodafone Flying Fijians at the ANZ Stadium today.

The 30-year old who made his debut for Italy against Scotland in Singapore last week is anticipating a tough test match.

“This will be my first time playing in Fiji so I am looking forward to it,”Monto said.

“Our goal is to keep improving as a team and try to beat the Fijians on their home ground,” Minto said.

“I believe we also have some amazing backline players as well like our wing Machele Campagnaro and a few more.”

Minto said the absence of some senior players would not affect their performance.

“There are some veterans who were not part of the side as they were given time to rest by the coaches. This is the perfect opportunity for the newcomers to prove their worth.

“There are Italians all over the world as it was evident during the match against Scotland in Singapore so I am expecting those in Fiji to come and support the team,” Minto added.

“I would also like to thank the Fijians for the great hospitality they have shown towards the team and it has been a pleasure coming to Fiji.”
