Pacific rugby teams poised for tour openers in Europe

There's a big weekend of international rugby ahead with the Pacific Big Three all in action over in Europe.

Overnight tonight Samoa take on Canada in the Welsh seaside town of Colwyn Bay, and then 24 hours later Tonga meet Italy in Brescia and Fiji face the toughest task of all, playing England at Twickenham.

Fiji's National Coaching Director Franck Boivert says the wintery conditions won't pose a problem for the team, but a lack of familiarity among the players may well have an impact on how the game plays out.
