The Fiji Airways Flying Fijians have spent two months ‘honing in’ on ways to match Australia’s breakdown prowess, believing – that will be the key to unlocking a momentous upset win, at the Rugby World Cup.

The Flying Fijians have been preparing well for the match, hoping to cause an upset in their opening match. Coach John McKee, says his team’s hard work, through an extended southern hemisphere winter together, had them quietly confident – they can live up to the ‘dark horse’ tag, bestowed on them.

“Archiving an upset is possible if they prepare well and ‘click’ – on the day,” McKee says.

“Yesterday’s training run was a very important one, and I had to meet with World Rugby also, to finalise the final details before their opening match.”

McKee is convinced that Fiji will be more formidable, than the side which suffered double-figure losses to Australia, England, and Wales – at the previous World Cup.
