The iconic Bukit Jalil National Stadium will host the match between the two sides, with Malaysia claiming they are not just aiming to reduce the 38-point deficit from last week.
Dinesvaran Krisnan will captain Malaysia for a second successive week and he is hoping his side can get a different result this week.
“We came back from Korea and started a little slow,” said Krisnan.
“But I am happy with the training this week. We get to refresh with the boys, we can forget what happened last week and think about this game only.
“We are looking for new energy, fresh energy, and hoping for a new result.”
For Korea, their captain Kwanyoung Na isn’t taking anything for granted despite the impressive victory in Incheon.
“We are still looking to improve the small things,” explained Na.
“There were some mistakes last week and we’re looking to improve on these too.”
Following this weekend’s match, there will be a one week break before Hong Kong, the 2018 champions of the Asia Rugby Championship, face home and away matches with both Korea and Malaysia.
The match can be viewed live on Asia Rugby’s Facebook page, while those in Malaysia will be able to view it live on Astro Sports.
