Vodafone Flying Fijians Coach, John McKee has named another strong line up to play Manu Samoa in their second 2017 Pacific Nations Cup match at the Apia Stadium tomorrow.

“With the PNC up for grabs and Samoa desperate to qualify for the Rugby World Cup in this series we expect a very tough challenge on Saturday,” McKee said yesterday.

“We are very determined to defend the PNC title which we have held since 2015.”

He added it was vital for the players to focus on all facets of the game which includes execution under pressure in order to win the match.

“The players must focus on getting the small tasks right and executing our plays under pressure to win this match. We missed out on a couple of tries last week because we were not accurate in our finishing or with the last passes,” McKee said.

“The team will have to work very hard in defence. Samoa have a very talented backline and we cannot afford to give them too much time and space.”

The Vodafone Flying Fijians will clash with the Manu Samoans at 1pm at Apia Stadium tomorrow.
