Sport: Flying Fijians bond ahead of tour

11:26 am on 26 October 2012

Fiji rugby coach Inoke Male says the playing group is as tight as ever and eagerly awaiting the start of next month's European tour.

Male named his 30 man squad this week that will play test matches against England and Georgia and tour games against Gloucester and Ireland A.

The Flying Fijians have spent the week training and doing team-bonding exercises in Suva and Male says things are coming together.

"To gel well out of the field can make it easier inside the field, that's what we're trying to do. The boys have come into camp for the team bonding stuff - building a team before we get on the field."

The bulk of the Fiji team flies to London next week.
