Fiji will hold its second training camp in less than three weeks to prepare for its upcoming Rugby World Cup in South Africa, according to the country’s head coach, David Severe.
“I think we’re going to start training on Tuesday and then we’ll have a training camp for the first time since the beginning of the season,” Severe said.
The first training camp was held on May 17, but Severe is confident the next one will be a more robust affair.
This will be our first time going to Australia for the last Rugby World cup.
We’ve had a pretty good run here in Fiji so we’re looking forward to the new challenge.
“Fiji will be without Sejuanis No. 7 and No. 12 Richie McCaw and No 16 Mako Vunipola for at least the first two weeks of camp, with the remaining players to be confirmed on Tuesday.
Fiji’s training camp opens on Wednesday and will run until April 20.
Fiji opens the Rugby World Series with a friendly against New Zealand in Auckland, before hosting Tonga in Auckland and then a match against Scotland at Suncorp Stadium.
