Forward Tui Kamikamica shared his thoughts following their 60-4 win over Italy in New Castle, Eng­land yesterday.

Speaking to SUNsports Kamikam­ica said discipline would be vital heading in their remaining games.

“Towards the end of the second half we had put in some late shots and stuff like that,” he said.

“Its good aggression but we need to control our aggression against Scotland next week.


“We need to keep playing the way we need and maintain our defense.

“This is something that we will have to work on not only against Scotland but our remaining games like the quarter-final, semis and final.”

He added that they need to be con­sistent and lift their performance if they intend to have a podium finish.

“The goal is to take one game at a time and take each game as it comes,” he said.


“Now we turn our focus on Scot­land next weekend and we are ready to do it all again in training.

“Italy have a couple of good spine in the middle so it was a battle for the first few minutes.

“We are just playing the Fijian style of footy going through the middle and then shifting it out wide.

“That has been our focus through­out the week nothing fancy just nice and simple.


“Good team performance from the boys, we just kept it nice and simple we spoke about that during the week.

“Our defense was great we only conceded one try, we have to im­prove and focus more on our defense leading up to the game against Scotland.

“Last World Cup we finished in the semi-final, this year we want to finish in the final.

“We didn’t start well against Aus­tralia, we didn’t control the ball in the last minutes of both halves so one of the focus next week is to keep the ball and retaining posses­sion.

“We have to send a message to the rest of the team that they should be ready to meet us.”
