Vodafone Flying Fijians coach John McKee has named Fiji oldest starting team in 12 years for the last pool match against Uruguay at the Rugby World Cup on Wednesday.

With an average age of 29 years and 108 days, it will be Fiji’s oldest starting XV since their 41-13 win against Japan at RWC 2003.

There are five personnel changes and one positional change to the team that lost to Wales.
