Scotland wary of Fiji

FRESH from upsetting the Australian Wallabies, Scotland will not rest on their laurels when they face the Vodafone Flying Fijians in a Test match in Suva this Saturday.

After beating Australia 24-19 at the Allianz Stadium in Sydney on Saturday, the visitors are wary of what they will come up against at the ANZ Stadium.

The Scottish have analysed the videos of Fiji's games against Australia and Italy with head coach Gregor Townsend identifying off-load specialist Leone Nakarawa to pose the biggest threat.

"We always look at the game against Fiji as very tough and we know the Fijian players very well," Townsend said.

"I have coached a few of them. Playing them here will be a big challenge.

"We watched Fiji's games on the flight over. We saw Fiji versus Australia and I thought that they played some very good rugby.

"Leone's off-loading and line breaks were excellent. We know him very well as he has been with Glasgow for the last couple of years."
