Fiji Airways Flying Fijians tight-head prop Manasa Saulo trusts his teammates will do the work upfront row if he does not get selected for the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan next month.

The humble man from Wainawaqa, Naitasiri believes unity and supporting one another is the focal tool as they play their final round of the World Rugby Pacific Nations Cup against Samoa this Saturday and getting their combination ready for RWC.

“If we don’t get selected on game day, we trust one another that they will do the job for us,” Saulo said.

“It’s more than a month now since we have been preparing and it has been tough.

“Competition in the front-row is very high as we have young players coming in and performing well, it’s good for our rugby in the long run.”

He believes the players will reach the fitness level required by head coach John McKee as they have 44 days left before they face Australia at Sapporo Dome on September 21.

“Preparation is tough and we will get there,” he added.

The 30-year old said the team management had done their work and the onus is on the players to prove themselves.

Saulo predicted the Samoan forwards will come out strong in the first 20 minutes in their final PNC match on Saturday.

“Samoa have bigger players in the front row, they will come hard in the first 20 minutes.

“They also have experienced props so they would attack the scrums.”

Loose-man Mosese Voka believes he will need to work hard to win a spot in the RWC.

“Great competition in the loose and I need to really work hard and to win a spot in the RWC.

“I have to really work hard and try to impress the coach McKee,” Voka said.
