Flying Fijians make seven changes

August 3, 2015 12:57 am

Vodafone Flying Fijians coach, John McKee has made seven changes to his side that beat Japan last week for the Pacific Nations Cup final match against Samoa tomorrow.

The most notable change is regular winger, Waisea Nayacalevu shifting to outside centre, ahead of Vereniki Goneva.

McKee says Nayacalevu is not new to the position, having worn the number 13 jersey for Top 14 champions, Stade Francais on several occasion during the 2014/2015 season.
