We have been traveling for over 24 hours. We are here in Dubai and we are still nine hours away from our destination of Cape Town.
Most of the team haven't been on a plane before so this trip is a hell of a first trip. We stopped over for six hours in Seoul and now another four hours in Dubai. The trips are around 8-10 hours each leg. As Dubai is only 2 hours behind South Africa, the boys are reminded not to sleep on the plane since we will be arriving at 4:30pm on Thursday.
We are ready to board our flight EK770 bound for Cape Town.
The Samoan team is also on the flight. The players have been eyeing each other out, probably trying to get a good glance of their opponents before Friday next week.
Until next time, ni sa moce. Article by Sale Sorovaki - Head Coach, Fiji U20
