“We trying our best to get there and the players have started to have that bond amongst each other, right combination and playing our Fijian style” he explained.

“It will be a tough match against the Vikings with five Wallabies on stand-by and 12 contracted Brumbies.

“We just have to stick to our game plan and expose our talents” he said.
