Flying Fijian players in training

Players in the Vodafone Flying Fijians camp have been reminded by coach Vern Cotter that Test rugby is different to Super Rugby and it is more intense.

Cotter says having a number of Fijian Drua players in the team is an added advantage because they know each other very well.

However he says shifting from Super Rugby to Test rugby is different because you have to be more accurate.

9 Drua players have been selected to start against Tonga while halfback Peni Matawalu is in the reserves.

The Flying Fijians play Tonga at 3.30pm tomorrow at the HFC Bank Stadium in Suva and you can catch the live commentary on Viti FM.

You can download the fijivillage app to listen to the live commentary through the live radio option.
