The Vodafone Flying Fijians have moved to 10th position in World Rugby rankings after the 30-22 win over Tonga at the ANZ Stadium, Suva, last week.

Fiji relegated Scotland to 11th place after the win in the Pacific Nations Cup last Saturday.

The team meanwhile, arrived in Sacramento, United States, yesterday to play Samoa on Saturday (Fiji time).

They were greeted by Fijians living in Sacramento.

Head coach John McKee is not ruling out the possibility of sticking with the combination he used against Tonga.

“I think we will have the same team that played Tonga against Samoa,” McKee said.

“They put on a good performance, so I think I will have to stick with the same team.”

He said there is no major injury in the team and the players were well and fit.

The Vodafone Flying Fijians will meet Manu Samoa at Bonneyfield Stadium, Sacramento, at noon (Fiji time) on Saturday.
