Vodafone Flying Fijians halfback Serupepeli Vularika is expecting a torrid time against Tonga on Saturday.

The Noco, Rewa native is confident of making the starting line-up.

“I’ve played against Tonga in the PNC last year and this will be my first time on Tongan soil,” he said.

“I’m happy to be part of the team. This time around it will be tough as I will be competing with Henry (Seniloli) but it brings the best out of us.”

Vularika plays for the QAQA Namosi rugby team in the Skipper Cup competition.

He made his Test debut in the 23-18 victory over Tonga in Suva last year.

Meanwhile, England based- utility back Vereniki Goneva said playing Tonga would be a physical one.

“We’ll need to match them in all aspects of play. Playing Tonga is always physical, definitely it’s going to be tough but the boys have put up their hands so will take on the challenge,” the 33-year-old added.
