SWIRE Shipping Fiji Warriors will take their pace to a level higher as they prepare for Junior Japan at the World Rugby Challenge tomorrow at the ANZ Stadium in Laucala Bay, Suva.

Both teams remain undefeated so far in the competition and will be in for a tough run.

Head Coach Senirusi Seruvakula said the team was anticipating a fast-paced game as Japan was well known for their speed.

“We know Japan will play a fast game and bring a lot of physicality and in order for us to win, we have to have our defence right,” Seruvakula said.

“We just want to keep that consistency and keep going forward when we have possession of the ball.”

The Swire Shipping Fiji Warriors will play Junior Japan at 5pm tomorrow while Tonga A will face Samoa A in the opening match at 2.30pm.

Final team: Eroni Mawi, Mesulame Dolokoto, Luke Tagi, Peni Naulago, Mosese Voka, Raikabula Momoedonu, Saimoni Uluinakauvadra, John Dyer, Frank Lomani (Capt), Caleb Muntz, Tira Wilagi, Tuidraki Samusamuvodre, Veresa Tuqovu, Vereamu Dikidikilati, Enele Malele

Reserve: Veremalua Vugakoto, Immanuel Naciva, Alifereti Rabukawaqa, Richard Derenalagi, Alifereti Loaloa, Simione Kuruvoli, Fabiano Navable, Osea Waqa.
