Irish prop Cian Healy who is also known as The Tank says they will never use their number one rank status to relax against the Flying Fijians.

Healy says Fiji has always been a different opponent with a lot of big players who can hit hard and run fast and they need to be ready for this.

He adds that they cannot afford to lose focus after their 19-16 win over World Champions South Africa last weekend.

Fiji came close to causing an upset the last time the two sides met in November 2017, as Ireland struggled to a 23-20 victory.

Ireland head coach Andy Farrell will likely make several changes to the match-day squad he selected for South Africa, as the game represents a good opportunity to test out new combinations.

Conor Murray won’t feature after he was ruled out of the rest of the Autumn Nations Series with a groin strain, although Stuart McCloskey and Robbie Henshaw could both feature despite picking up injuries last week.

Fiji will face Ireland at 1am Sunday.
