All the play­ers are fit and rar­ing to go on Satur­day. But we must mon­i­tor work­loads of some of the play­ers who joined the team from their clubs as they have had high train­ing and game loads at their clubs. John McKee Voda­fone Fly­ing Fijians coach

With just three days to go un­til the Voda­fone Fly­ing Fijians take on the Bar­bar­ians at Kingspan Sta­dium in Belfast, play­ers are look­ing fit. Those who have joined the team from their var­i­ous clubs will be mon­i­tored closely said coach John McKee.

“All the play­ers are fit and rar­ing to go on Satur­day,” McKee said. “But we must mon­i­tor work­loads of some of the play­ers who joined the team from their clubs as they have had high train­ing and game loads at their clubs.

“Our fo­cus in train­ing is in­ten­sity rather than vol­ume.” Since ar­riv­ing in Belfast, McKee said they are happy with the fa­cil­i­ties have used and are fo­cus­ing on their game plan for the week. “Prepa­ra­tion has been go­ing well at our new team base in Belfast. The play­ers are very mo­ti­vated for this game against the Bar­bar­ians,” he said. “We have worked on build­ing our game plan and team co­he­sion from our train­ings in France last week. “The team trained twice at the Queens Univer­sity Sports Fields. We will train once again with a cap­tain’s run at Kingspan Sta­dium on Fri­day.” The team for Satur­day will be an­nounced to­day. Edited by Osea Bola
