The Vodafone Flying Fijians head coach, John McKee, yesterday announced a strong squad that will march into camp today for the 2015 Pacific Nations Cup

“Although disappointing to go down 26-27 against the strong Maori All Blacks last Saturday, the team can take many positives from the performance,” McKee said.

“Particularly in the first-half I could see the potential of this group and the players really applied themselves to the game plan we have been developing in training.

“The squad will work hard on key aspects of our game along with conditioning fitness work and gym training before working on the specifics for the match against Tonga this Saturday”

The Vodafone Flying Fijians will face the “Ikale Tahi” team (Tonga) in their first Pacific Nations Cup match at 3pm on Saturday at the ANZ Stadium in Suva.

The team then travels to the United States of America to play Samoa on July 24 and onto Canada where they play Japan on Wednesday July 29.
