FORMER Flying Fijians outside centre Viliame Satala is counting on hard-hitting flyer Nemani Nadolo and homeboy Metuisela Talebula as players to watch this afternoon.
He said the strength of Nadolo and the class of Talebula would be an asset for the host side in their bid to secure their first PNC win this season.
Satala said Fiji had some world-class backline players who were ruthless in defence and flamboyant in attack.
"We have a very talented bunch of backline players who can create something out of nothing," he said.
"Nadolo will be a handful for the Tongans because of his ability to off-load during tackle situations and creating space for the wingers.
"Likewise Talebula is a talented player who has proven himself in the white jumper against Tonga in their last visit to Lautoka's Churchill Park."
The mercurial Talebula scored two tries in Fiji's 37-25 win against Tonga in his second game for the Flying Fijians in 2012.
Satala said the backline would only showcase their talents provided they had quality possession from their forwards.
He said the forwards needed to dig deep to counter their physical and bigger Tongan forwards.
"The Fijian forwards need to win quality ball in order for backline to showcase their attacking flair and prowess.
"If the forwards compete well upfront surely our backs will have a field day.
"In general teamwork is a must for Fiji to beat the Tongans and most importantly our boys must be aggressive in defence," he added.
During his heydays Satala has defeated the Tongans on four occasions compared to the five games he played for the Flying Fijians.
