Tuicuvu to make his debut for Flying Fijians

November 7, 2018 11:03 pm

Clermont full-back Seta Tuicuvu will make his debut for the Fiji Airways Flying Fijians in their first Northern Hemisphere test match against Scotland on Sunday.

Flying Fijians coach John McKee says Tuicuvu has adjusted well at the full-backs position and is ready to get a spot in the starting line-up.

“Seta Tuicuvu has trained very well. We have been having some serious discussion today to finalize the team and he has certainly fitted in.”

Tuicuvu will replace Kini Murimurivalu who was ruled out after sustaining an injury during his French Top 14 club game last month.
