Flying Fijians scrum coach Allan Muir believes the Telecom Fijian Warriors forwards need to focus more on the scrums as they prepare for Pacific Rugby Challenge   which will be hosted in Suva on March 8-21.

Muir had his first session with the Fijian forwards at Bidesi Park yesterday afternoon and his main concern is bringing the forwards together effectively.

“What we need to do is time together and they haven’t done any time together as a scrum up until today.

“It’s all about time and settle,” Muir said.

Muir commended the efforts shown by the local boys during training.

“First session I have done with them, so they are eager; they are keen and that’s a great starting point.

“Next few days till Saturday, it will be critical in terms of our preparation and how we advance with the young players,” he added.

The scrum coach also believes getting in the local players would be a positive move towards preparation for the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

Samoa and Tonga have also brought in their local players for the PRC campaign.

“This is good for the long-term as the boys in the island get selected this is a good opportunity for them to stand up.

“ It’s important we got to qualify for the World Cup again and some of the players that are currently in the Flying Fijians squad now are older and might not be available in 2019 so this is where these young lads will come in,” he added.
