Captain Koto made these comments during a visit to the students at the Fiji Society for the Blind School in Vatuwaqa this morning.

Upon their visit the four Samisoni Viriviri, Seremaia Bai, Leone Nakarawa and Sunia Koto were welcome from the students and the school administration with a joyful chorus sung by the students.

KOTO: “We feel that its right to dedicate this next game to the children of Fiji and to everyone. Coming here today just reminds us of who we are playing for, we are playing for the Fijians and more specifically to the kids.”

He said the students attending the Fiji Society for the Blind’s school learning curve has really inspired them a lot.

KOTO: “We had really enjoyed our visit today. We were really busy with other schedules and other meetings this morning but when stepped into the hall we were quiet emotional, the occasion really humbled.”

Looking at their preparations the veteran hooker said the side has been preparing accordingly.

KOTO: “We have really worked hard on our weaknesses. The coaches have come up with the game plan to counter the strong Samoan team so this weak we have been preparing accordingly to match the Samoan teams.”

Meanwhile, Flying Fijians coach John McKee will name his 23 member squad on Thursday.

Fiji takes on Samoa at 3pm on Saturday.
