Fijians no match for snake

It may look like the Fiji Rugby League team is here to just enjoy Coffs Coast's many tourist attractions but make no mistake ? they are here to win.

The squad of 12 arrived in town earlier this week to play in the weekend's Orara Valley Sevens and then against the Cook Islands at the International Stadium on Australia Day.

Mixing business with pleasure, the team yesterday paid a visit to the Coffs Harbour Zoo, proving that footy players can be scared of snakes ? some-thing these guys aren't too familiar with at home.

The full story on the team's journey here will appear in tomorrow's sports section.
