Manu Samoa head coach Alama Ieremia believes he has the best package to deliver against the Vodafone Flying Fijians at the ANZ Stadium tomorrow.

Prominent names to lead the charge are Tusi Pisi,  Faifili Levave and Greg Foe making his test debut at openside flanker.

Sakaria Taulafo will bolster the scrum with veteran James Johnston.

Team captain David Lemi will provide the speed out wide with Faatoina Autagavaia on the wings.

“It’s a good team,” Ieremia said.

“We need these experienced players to play against a very good Fijian side.

“We know Fiji will be a very confident side after last week’s performance against Tonga. So we need to play our best.”

The former All Blacks centre said they would have to be on top of their game against the Fijians.

“We have to make sure to be on top of our game to be competitive. We know it’s going to be tough but it’s challenging and exciting at the same time and we are looking forward to it.”
