THE Fiji Airways Flying Fijians will target Italy and start their November tour on a high note when they meet on Sunday in Italy.

Coach John McKee said was he was aware of the tactics Italy will bring to the match.

"We know Italy will base their game on a strong scrum and maul," he said.

"We will need to match them in these areas.

"I see some change in the Italy team under the new coaching staff and expect them to try and play more open game than they have in the past."

McKee was impressed with the halfback Frank Lomani.

"Frank is training well and pressing his claim for inclusion in the Test team," McKee said.

"We need to step our performance up. I am looking for constant improvement from our players individually and from the team collectively.

"The team had settled well here and training has been good."

The match will be played at in Catania, Sicily in Italy.
