THE first round of the June Test Series is ready to kick-start today at Suva’s ANZ Stadium with Tonga taking on Georgia and Fiji to host Samoa.

The four team captains gathered for a photo shoot yesterday at Suva’s Yacht club with the prestigious Pacific Nations Cup at stake.

Samoa will be desperate for a win in order to qualify for the Rugby World Cup next year in Japan.

Tonga faces Georgia at 1pm while the Fiji and Samoa match kicks off at 3.30pm.
