Ma'afu to miss out on Saturday clash
June 13, 2017 6:36 pm
The Vodafone Flying Fijians team will miss a key prop in the rugby test against Italy this Saturday.
Campese Ma’afu will not be part of the side due to personal reasons but the good news is that another experienced front rower, Manasa Saulo, has joined camp.
Veteran hooker Sunia Koto has rated Saulo highly and says this will be a boost for the team.
“It is a great boost with his experience. He plays top level rugby in France and will definitely boost the confidence of the team. It is a great boost for the whole team with days away from a very important Test.”
Patrick Osborne, Levani Botia and Peceli Yato will join the camp this week but will not be considered for the Italy game.
The Fiji-Italy match kicks off at 2.30pm on Saturday at the ANZ Stadium and you can catch a live commentary on Radio Fiji One.
