August 3, 2015 4:58 am
The new-look Vodafone Flying Fijians midfield combination of Gabriel Lovobalavu and Waisea Nayacalevu will add a different dimension to the team’s attack in the Pacific Nations Cup final against Samoa tomorrow.
National coach, John McKee was impressed by Nayacalevu’s good form against their island rivals earlier in the competition, which ended in a 30-all draw.
McKee say the new midfield partnership gives him a chance to look at a different centre pairing in the lead-up to the World Cup in September.
Nayacalevu replaces veteran, Vereniki Goneva at outside centre while Lovobalavu comes in for the block-busting inside centre, Levani Botia.
The Flying Fijians will take on Samoa in the PNC final at 12pm tomorrow.
