THE Fiji under-18 rugby team is working on its defence prior to the Test against the New Zealand Schoolboys tomorrow.
After romping to a 74-10 victory over the New South Wales Country Schoolboys on Monday, the Mesulame Dolokoto-captained side is prepared to face the Kiwis.
Team manager Lionel Danford said the boys knew the huge task against New Zealand.
"Preparation is well under way. We know that the game against New Zealand is one of the toughest games for us," Danford said.
He said the team talked about its defence which would be an essential part of their game against New Zealand.
Danford said the team did a strength, weakness, opportunity and threat (SWOT) analysis while reviewing its last game.
"We talked about our defence this morning (yesterday). The management team sat down and did a SWOT analysis on our last game.
"We need to organise our defence structure and not allow New Zealand to penetrate our line."
He said the support from the Fijian community was excellent.
"The boys feel at home because of the big support here, thus contributing to the big win against the NSW Country team.
"Even in Sydney, the Fiji community kept coming and visiting the boys, hosting dinner and supplying water and fruits in abundance."
Former Fiji age-group player and Brumbies winger Henry Speight also visited the players in camp.
Danford urged the nation to support the team through prayers as they prepare for their match.
