The Fiji Warriors are in good stead to win the Pacific Rugby Cup.
The side lost only one match against Queensland A early this year and needs to beat Tonga A and Samoa A in Nuku’alofa next week. Assistant backline coach Sale Sorovaki said the Fiji Warriors won five games so far.
“We will try and finish where we left off in Australia and New Zealand,” Sorovaki said.
“The ultimate aim is to win the two games with only two weeks to prepare. Most of these boys are new to this level but they have been playing provincial rugby and this is just another level up.”
He added he has a good set of players in the backline, with Jock Luita from Nadi and Henry Seniloli at halfback and Nadroga’s Jiuta Lutumailagi and Kolinio Vunaki as playmakers.
“This is a big challenge for them to try and blend well with old hands like Manueli Gade and Sireli Ledua.
“It’s also a big challenge for Niko Verekauta and Jovesa Kunawave and then we have Maikeli Mocetadra who is no stranger to the game.
“It’s going to be a physical because Tonga and Samoa play the same kind of rugby. They are always physical upfront and the challenge will be there for our forwards to front up.”
The team departs tomorrow and plays Tonga on Monday.
