Rugby Union. Lepani Botia of Fiji in action during the Barbarians vs Fiji as part of the celebrations of the centenary of the Fiji Rugby Union at Twickenham Stadium on November 30, 2013. London, England.

Vodafone Flying Fijians coach John McKee is hoping that Lepani Botia will rise to the occasion on Friday.

McKee said this will be a special moment for Botia, and knows the Naitasiri man will again show his class as he did in the Pacific Nations Cup tournament.

‘You know Lepani he’s a strong player and I’m sure he’s gonna grab this opportunity as he was strong for us throughout the PNC, he’ll do very well for us,McKee said.

McKee added the best possible side has been selected to play Wales.

‘In the camp the spirits of the team are high and we are dissapointed for not getting any points in our pool in the last two matches and we have not been consistent enough across the 80 minutes.’
