Fiji will challenge Ireland at the Aviva Stadium as part of the Autumn Internationals Series. It’s going to be a brilliant game.

Ireland is one of the world’s best and most consistent rugby teams, while Fiji is one of the best Pacific teams. But what Ireland has in terms of status, Fiji has in spades of pluck.

The Fijian team has thrived at the Rugby World Cup on occasion, and the better the team they face, the more energy and determination they seem to pull out of the bag. They have not won against Ireland before, but if anyone can turn it around, it’s former World Cup quarter-finalists, Fiji.

No matter how both sides play, there’s the added bonus of the Fijian side’s pre-game cibi, a war dance which originated back when Fiji was at war with other Pacific nations.

And indeed, this will be a war of sorts as Ireland and Fiji battle it out at the Aviva Stadium.
