Flying Fijians utility back Vilimoni Botitu is raring to go out and give his best shot if selected for the match against the Wallabies on Monday.
The 25-year-old joined camp last weekend after the Fiji Water Flying Fijians Head coach Simon Raiwalui made an SOS call to replace fly-half Caleb Muntz who got injured during a non-contact session.
Botitu says the call from Raiwalui came as a surprise as he was not expecting it, because other senior players on the list could have replaced Muntz.
He says he never thought that he would be called up because other players in the squad used to play at fly-half and got dropped.
The Olympic Games gold medalist knows that he will need to give his one hundred percent if selected for the match against the Wallabies.
Botitu says he was in training when he got a call from Raiwalui asking him to join the Flying Fijians camp.
The 25-year-old says the environment is the same as it was during their first week in camp in Taveuni and it's nothing new for him, still the same set of players and coaches he worked with.
Botitu thanks Raiwalui and the team for believing in him and giving him a chance once again.
The Flying Fijians play the Wallabies at 3.45am Monday in Lyon.
