All Blacks VS Fiji Live WORD FROM THE FIJIAN CAAMP

Vern Cotter, Fiji’s Head Coach, said that his team would not be fully fit after regular halfbacks Frank Lomani (Moses Sorovi) and the first five-eighths Teti Teti Tela couldn’t travel to New Zealand because of the closure of the Australian travel bubble. Tela, Lomani, and Sorovi are not available. Still, there are many familiar faces for New Zealand fans, with Nemani Naidolo wearing the 11 jerseys and Manasa Mateaele set to make his debut on the bench. Cotter stated that it was cold in Dunedin, but the sun is shining, and it’s dry. We will play Fijian rugby. We will play rugby that suits our abilities. We won’t play any other rugby. Instead, we will play our rugby.
