Fiji Airways Flying Fijians coach John McKee has an experienced strong side lined-up for the opening World Rugby Pacific Nations Cup match against Japan this Saturday in Kamaishi, Japan.
“We know the quality of players Japan has and the importance of playing them at one of our World Cup venues; so we have to put on a good performance,” Coach McKee said.
McKee added that the players who missed the final Fiji Airways Pacific Series match against the Maori All Blacks are looking sharp and ready for this week.
Clermont giant forward Peceli Yato also comes in after missing the last two matches. His inclusion with others will surely give Coach McKee a tough task in selecting the best team for the weekend.
“Leone Nakarawa and Lepani Botia are also now part of the mix and will be strong contenders for selection,” McKee added.
