Telecom Fijian Warriors head coach Senirusi Seruvakula is confident of a good outing against Junior Japan in the second round of the World Rugby Pacific Challenge at the ANZ Stadium, Suva tomorrow.

Speaking to SUNsports yesterday Seruvakula said training has been going well but he is looking at a few players that were injured during their clash against Tonga A last Friday.

“We should be ready for Junior Japan,” he said.

“There is injury in the front row in prop Mesake Doge as well as some of our backline players, which are just minor ones.”

Seruvakula said they have discussed and worked on their discipline, which was the sore point in their 38-30 win over Tonga A.

“Discipline was our main downfall from the last match and we are going to improve on it. We need more work to be done on our discipline and that’s one of our main focus right now as on Monday we will have the captain’s run and Tuesday is game day so we want to make use of whatever remaining time we have.”

Meanwhile, Fiji Rugby Union chief executive officer John O’Connor said the Pacific Challenge is a great way to kick start international rugby with tough Tests coming up in June at the ANZ Stadium.

“This will be another fierce competition between the four nations, and the Telecom Fijian Warriors will be out to defend their title,” he said.

“So I am urging all the supporters to buy their tickets and cheer for the boys at the ANZ Stadium.”

World Rugby chairman, Bill Beaumont said: “The Pacific Challenge helps local and academy players gain beneficial game time and gives exposure to a high-performance tournament environment.

Samoa A 31-34 Junior Japan,
