Tonga has a dynamic backline, says Volavola

Flying Fijians flyhalf Ben Volavola says Tonga boasts a dynamic backline and is expecting a physical battle from the Ikale Tahi in their Pacific Nations Cup opener on Saturday in Suva.
 
Volavola said apart from having a classy backline, the Tongan forward pack is something they are also wary of and will need to be on top of their game to record a win.
 
"Returning to the Flying Fijians camp is always the highlight of my season. I really enjoy coming back and joining the boys whether it be here in Fiji during the PNC or every November during international tours.
 
Volavola is also eager to assist younger players in the squad. 
 
"Every time I'm picked to join the boys, I really cherish these moments, but also aware that I learned a lot of lessons being overseas and just trying to implement and teach the younger boys coming into our program about those lessons and hoping to be a part of their growth."
 
"Lessons are just normal like skills about the way the game is played. And just really help trying to help them get confidence to back themselves and express themselves."
