The Fiji Water Flying Fijians may not get the luxury of a sports psychologist but they are lucky they have got other things and have been able to get a talatala in.

This has been highlighted by head coach Simon Raiwalui while responding to questions about the disparity in resources between the Wallabies and the Flying Fijians where the Wallabies have three sports psychologist.

Raiwalui says they have prepared the best they can with what they have got.

The coach says there is a difference in the developed and the developing nations in terms of resources but they but their sponsors and World Rugby have been really good.

He says they would always want more resources but they always have to do with the best they have.

Raiwalui adds he will take more matches over resources and if they can get more Tier 1 matches regularly, you can see what the boys can do when they get regular competition.
