Turn up in white, Fiji Rugby urges fans ahead of Fijiana-Canada Test

Fiji Rugby Union is urging fans to come together and send off the Rooster Chicken Fijiana 15s in true Fijian style at the HFC Bank Stadium in Suva on Friday as they take on Canada in their final Test before they depart for the Rugby World Cup 2021 in New Zealand next month.

The match scheduled for a 6pm kick-off at the HFC Bank Stadium this Friday is the side’s final warm-up game at home before they make their first appearance in the Women’s XVs penultimate event which starts on 8 October in Auckland.

FRU Chief Executive John O’Connor is calling on fans to turn up to the Laucala Bay stadium in white as a show of support for the Fijiana XVs.

“The match will be a real baptism of fire for the Rooster Chicken Fijiana as they take on the third-ranked Canada team before they leave for the World Cup. England and France who are in our pool are ranked No 1 and No 4 so the match against Canada is very important for our preparation. The match will be Fijiana’s toughest test so let us all show our support by wearing white and coming out in great numbers,” Mr O’Connor said.

At the RWC2021, Fiji has been grouped in Pool C with England, France and South Africa.
