Vodafone Flying Fijians now focus on their role to the 2015 Rugby World Cup and not so much on the world ranking.

Head coach John McKee said they were not really focusing on where they want to be in the World rankings.

“At the moment we are already focussing on our rugby world cup performance.

“We have prepared for every game including the World ranking and at the end of the day we look after ourselves. We really not are focusing on where we want to be in the world rankings,” McKee said.

“In the next three years will try to push up to get around top eight positions.

McKee said they had learned a lot from the Pacific Nations Cup where they won the title defeating Samoa 39-29.

“I am just looking forward giving this a good hit at the back of the successful PNC campaign we learned a lot during the campaign and did some things very well and we’ve got other areas to work on.

“It will be good now to get two and a half weeks and we have already had works with no distractions just trying to improve our performance.”

Meanwhile, the Flying Fijians preliminary squad have marched into camp at the Grand Pacific Hotel yesterday and McKee also confirmed Netani Talei and Waisea Nayacalevu were the only two that will be joining the Vodafone Flying Fijians today.

“Talei and Nayacalevu will be arriving tomorrow (today) because of their flights have been delayed but everyone else should be in camp tonight (last night).

The 31-member squad to the RWC will be named next Friday.

Fiji is in Pool A alongside Australia, England, Wales and Uruguay and plays England in their opening match.
