March 15, 2019 4:09 pm
Swire Shipping Fiji Warriors coach Senirusi Seruvakula named two new caps for the World Rugby Pacific Challenge against Samoa A tomorrow.
Joseva Nasaroa and Tevita Ikanivere have been included in the 23-man squad and Seruvakula is determined to close out his fifth Warriors campaign with a victory.
“We’re taking the strongest team possible into this match, we’re not here to make up the numbers just because we’ve secured the series”
Ikanivere has been given the nod in the starting hooker position with the young rake replacing Fiji Airways Flying Fijian Mesulame Dolokoto who’s had another solid series in the number 2 jersey.
Ratu Meli Nabura returns at number 4 alongside the experienced Mosese Voka who will be flanked by the promising young back row of Loaloa and Uluinakauvadra.
The halves combination of Lomani and Muntz will continue to prosper and breakout centre Veresa Tuqovu and Samusamuvodre combine again with Tira Wilagi and Veramu Dikidikilati following their 5 try collective effort on Tuesday.
Fiji takes on Samoa A at 4 tomorrow afternoon following the opener match between Tonga A and Junior Japan at 1.30pm.
