    Kiwis expect Scots to 'come out fighting'

    The Kiwis are gearing up to take on Scotland in their Rugby League World Cup pool match in Christchurch on Saturday.

    The Kiwis will be making sure they're focused on "doing the basics well" when they take on Scotland in their Rugby League World Cup pool match in Christchurch on Saturday.

    Kiwi team captain Adam Blair says their last match saw them fumble the ball a few times, but the squad's been working on the basics in training.

    "It's all about being better, we weren't at our best and we made a lot of errors," Blair said.

    The Kiwis are coming off a win after taking down Samoa 38-8 in Auckland.

    Meanwhile, the Warriors player is expecting Scotland to "come out firing" on Saturday, after a massive 4-50 point loss in their last match against Tonga.

    "Any team that comes off a defeat, you do have motivation going into the game, you want to be better... and Scotland will be ready to go," he said.

    The Kiwis will hit the field at AMI Stadium for training Friday afternoon.

    It would give the players a chance to get a feel for what it will be like on Saturday afternoon, Blair said.
