The Vodafone Flying Fijians captain Sunia Koto has dedicated Saturday’s clash against Samoa to the students of Fiji Society for the Blind School.

“We feel its right to dedicate this next game to the students here, to the children of Fiji and to everyone,” the Yadrana native from Lakeba said.

This followed their visit to the Vatuwaqa-based school in Suva yesterday with fellow team members Seremaia Bai, Samisoni Viriviri and Leone Nakarawa.

Koto said they were preparing accordingly to match the Samoan side in the second round of the 2016 Pacific Nations Cup and also the first round of the 2019 Rugby World Cup qualifiers.

“The coaches have come up with a game plan to counter the strong Samoan team. We’ve worked on our weaknesses last week,” he added,

Bai, who now plays for elite European club Leicester Tigers, said they would make sure that they don’t repeat the same mistake against Samoa.

“We keep on reminding ourselves of last week’s game. We had a slow start. They are a very good side so we will be preparing well physically but more importantly mentally.”

The veteran utility back is also expected to don the national jumper one last time in the Series before hanging his boots at the end of the year.

“For me, it’s all about what I can bring to the team in terms of doing my job. We all know the importance of this game which is one of our main goals and that is to qualify for the 2019 World Cup,” he said.
