Akapusi Qera believes the inclusion of local players against Tonga is good for the Fiji Airways Flying Fijians in the long run.

The Flying Fijians captain was impressed with the 23 players named for the encounter at Churchill Park, Lautoka tomorrow.

“This week our coaches and management have come up with another strong team,”Qera said.

“I’ve faith the team will deliver on Saturday.

“Mosese Voka deserves a starting spot at No.7 and we are happy with his progress and he should establish himself in that position in future.

“Halfback Frank Lomani was impressive when he replaced Henry Seniloli last week.

“He showed his class and potential and should have another good game on Saturday.”

Qera has been impressed on the progress the team has made since he played in his first Rugby World Cup in 2007.

Since 2007 there has been massive progress in our forwards pack due to the professionalism of the clubs that they go to.

Meanwhile, tighthead prop Manasa Saulo has pleaded to members of the public to turn up tomorrow and support the team.

“I’m pleading to fans to come in anumbers nd support the team,”he said.

“Many of us have played together since the last RWC and we are ready for another challenge this Saturday.

“We should have another good game on Saturday and this is an opportunity for western fans to cheer for their Flying Fijians.”
