Flying Fijians Coach John McKee after their games last weekend said the team has a lot of work to do before they take on Georgia.

He said they will have to cut down on the mistakes they’ve committed in their past games.

McKEE: “We’ve got a lot of work to do before next week and we have another really important game against Georgia and we need to cut those mistakes and we had to many turn over today.”

Coach McKee said the test match against Georgia will not be an easy one.

McKEE: “We saw Georgia was a strong physical team they are different suit of opposition to both Tonga and Samoa and they play different styles of game which is really good for us because we need to test ours with other teams. They are very very strong in the scrums they moll strong and we are going to really take them on those areas in any chance of beating them this week.”

Meanwhile, Georgia is on high note after edging the Ikali Tahi Tonga 23-20 last weekend. The side also drew with Samoa 19-all in the week earlier.

The Fijians retained the Pacific Nations Cup after beating the Manu Samoans 26-16.

The test match kicks off at 3pm at the ANZ Stadium on Friday.
