AL KELLOCK has warned Scotland they can't afford any drop in intensity when they face Fiji in the second leg of their summer tour of Australasia tomorrow week.
Andy Robinson's men kicked-off the three-Test tour with an epic 9-6 midweek victory over Australia in monsoon conditions, their first success in Oz since 1982.
But now the Glasgow Warriors skipper has told his international team-mates that they can expect no easy ride when they run out at Churchill Park.
With the Scots' last meeting with the South Sea Islanders Down Under coming back in 1998, when the tourists went down 51-26 in Suva, Kellock is in no doubt that standards must be maintained.
Big Al said: "We have had a couple of days to savour the Australian win but the most important thing for us is that we move all our focus onto Fiji and then Samoa.
"The last time we played the Fijians on their soil they put over 50 points on the score board and that tells you how dangerous they will be.
"I think the big thing for them is that not many established international sides tour in the South Seas, so this is a case of us going right into the lion's den if you like.
"That also means is that the Fijians are getting the opportunity to show what they can do in front of their fans on their home turf.
"If anything this could be even more brutal than the Australian Test. So it is vital that we maintain the standards we set against the Wallabies.
"This will be a different type of Test match played in far different conditions and Fiji are going to be very dangerous opponents on their soil. Given they are at 16 in the IRB rankings and we are only four places above them this will be seen as a real opportunity for them."
Kellock added: "The conditions at the Ausgrid Stadium were among the worst I have ever played in. But I think we know what we will get over in Fiji and the heat is going to be a real factor.
"Our defence was superb against the Aussies and it will need to be every bit as good at Churchill Park."
Scotland back Max Evans is hoping to make an impact on the tour despite his late arrival.
He missed the win over Australia because his French club, Castres, would not release him ahead of their Top 14 semi-final against Toulouse.
"All I can do is train well and put my hand up for selection," he said. "Any opportunity to play for Scotland, and any Scotland game missed, is upsetting."
