NEWCASTLE Knights forward Korbin Sims says he will treasure the opportunity to play alongside elder brothers Ashton and Tariq against Ireland at Spotland Stadium in Rochdale this morning.
Korbin was named in Rick Stone's Vodafone Fiji Bati team which included his older brothers Tariq and Ashton, Wes and Kevin Naiqama, veteran Petero Civoniceva, Daryl Millard, Sisa Waqa and Akuila Uate.
All Sims brothers play for different National Rugby League (NRL) clubs.
"It has been great playing with them," Korbin told www.thisischeshire.co.uk.
"It means the world to me to be here and get the chance to represent my family and my country. I'm so proud to represent Fiji.
"I'd say the warm-up helped us. It definitely helps us as a team to come together and bond, it gave us a chance to see how we all like to play the game."
The 21-year old said Fiji's 2008 RLWC exploits had inspired the team to strive for the best.
