“The battle is in your hands,” he said.

“You need to be strong in ideas to fight this giant Goliath that is in front of you. You will be able to nail it,” he said.

Rev Kacimaiwai said unity would keep the team together.

“This is the time for leadership, a time for national challenge.

“The small shepherded was called by God to be his instrument and you have been called by God.

“The skills that he has given to you should be glorified back to Him.

“Remember to keep your teachable spirit with you because this is the unity that will keep you together as a team.

“Wear that armour of God because London is not an easy place. You need to know who and why you are there and look upon the Lord on and off the field.

“The world will be watching you, your province and your people. Do your best in this Rugby World Cup.. God will have the final say in the victory that you are looking for.”

Lock Nemia Soqeta, meanwhile said teamwork and unity among players could help them score good results in England.

“It was a powerful message that we received today during the service,” he said.

“This is my first RWC and I will give my best performance.

“I strongly believe on teamwork because it will lead us to success,” Soqeta said.
