Fiji’s most-capped rugby player, Nicky Little, believes this year’s Rugby World Cup squad is much better than the 2007 side that reached the quarterfinals.
In an exclusive interview with FBC Sports, little says the team has what it takes to deliver on the sport’s biggest stage.
The former national flyhalf says he’s impressed with our current number 10, Caleb Muntz.
“I think they’re better than us. Not as good-looking as us, but they’re better, and yeah, I think they’ll do better than us, and I hope they do. And my shout out to Caleb Muntz, my man.”
Little was instrumental in Fiji’s win over Wales during their last pool match at the 2007 World Cup before being injured in the dying stages of the match, and he missed the quarterfinal against South Africa.
Little, along with numerous other fans, showed up to support Fiji in their game against England.
Witnessing the team’s victory on Sunday was an incredibly emotional moment for him and all former players.
“I didn’t know whether I should cry or laugh or get angry I didn’t want ruin this day.”
Little emphasised that the feeling he experienced during this historic win will forever remain etched in his memory.
As the most capped Fijian player, he firmly asserts that Fiji is a team that should not be underestimated.
Fiji will face Wales at 7am on 11 September.
