Fiji Praying For A Miracle after Recent Loss to Uruguay

John McKee’s position as Fiji’s head coach has been threatened after some journalist has called the New Zealand born coach to be sacked following his side’s shock loss to Uruguay at the Rugby World Cup. Most people have expected a much better performance from the Flying Fijians taking into consideration that this is McKee’s second World Cup with Fiji.

Fiji’s Head Coach John Mckee

Fiji’s 30-27 defeat to Uruguay at the Kamaishi Recovery Memorial Stadium on Wednesday now sees the Pacific Island nation needing a miracle to qualify for the quarter-finals of the competition. John McKee admits that their goal-kicking was a factor for their defeat. With Fiji only kicked one goal, and with such narrow margin in the score-line, the goal-kicking would have made a difference.

The Flying Fijians were tournament favorites to cause a World Cup upset, but it has been McKee’s charges who have fallen to a lower-ranked team. Especially, when this was the same Uruguay side they trashed 68-7 in London, last November. Fiji is now relying a lot outside of their control and they just have to focus on their next match against Georgia in seven days.
