FIJI Airways Flying Fijians winger Nemani Nadolo is raring to go against Tonga in the 2018 Pacific Nations Cup match at Churchill Park in Lautoka this Saturday.

“Playing Tonga is always tough,” he said.

But the Montpellier wing said Tonga would be a hard side to beat.

The ‘Ikale Tahi overcame Samoa 28-18 last Saturday despite finishing the game with 13 men.

“Tonga is going to be another stiff competition and it is always hard playing against them and the most exciting thing for us is that we are going to play them in the west which we have done in the last four years,” he said.

“Our forwards need to step up again and set the platform and some of the players who are from west are excited to play in front of their friends and families.

“We need to leave a mark as our last game in Fiji for the year.”

The match kicks off at 3pm.
