Iíve been practicing, Ralulu says of 90s rule

Nadroga fly-half Jonetani Ralulu will be working hard over the next few days to perfect his timing if he is called upon to make the conversions for the Flying Fijians during their November Europe Tour matches.

Among the handful of IRB Laws currently being trialled in the Northern Hemisphere is the 90-second conversion rule which requires all conversion kicks taken within 90 seconds from when a try is awarded.

“I’ve been practicing,” Ralulu said.

“I had some good practice during the Farebrother challenge with Nadroga, but still need to perfect my timing.

“At times I’m on the spot at other times I’m slow so I really need to be alert and try and take the conversion within the given time frame given that the rule as well as others that are currently on trial in the Northern Hemisphere.”

That aside, Ralulu is looking forward to the action on the pitch during their tour and has no doubts that England will be a tough team to crack when they meet up next Sunday (Fiji Time).

“I have like everyone else in the team been preparing well for this outing. They won’t be easy games, particularly against England. They are a Tier-1 team so we would really need to bring our A games onto the pitch against them.”
