Flying Fijians skipper, Netani Talei’s inclusion in the final 22 to play Tonga at Churchill Park will be decided this afternoon.
It’s both teams final Pacific Nations Cup clash and team manager, Isei Rayawa says apart from a niggling shoulder injury, Talei also has the flu.
“At the moment Netani Talei is injured but this afternoon the physio will advise whether he will be physically fit to play. As far as we are concerned, we will stick to our methods that only players who are 100% physically fit will play.”
Should Talei sit out this weekend, Kelepi Ketedromo is the likely replacement.
Coach, Inoke Male will announce his 22 players on Thursday morning.
The live commentary of the Fiji-Tonga match which kicks off at 3.30pm on Saturday will air on Bula FM with the voice of rugby, Graham Eden.
