Serevi At Full Back For Fiji

Serevi At Full Back For Fiji

Waisale Serevi who scored a try for Fiji as a replacement against Wales last weekend will line out at full-back against Ireland in the permanent tsb international on Sunday

The Fijian side for Sunday’s permanent tsb international against Ireland show four changes from the side beaten 58-14 in Cardiff last Saturday. The changes are Waisale Serevi at full-back, Vili Satala in the centre, Alivereti Mocelutu at wing-forward and Sisa Koyamaibole at number 8.

Three of the starting line-up, Koyamaibole, Alifereti Doviverata and lock Api Naevo play their club rugby in Japan with the rest plying their trade between Britain, France, New Zeland and Australia.

Although they suffered that heavy defeat against the Welsh, the Fijians will be stronger this time around particularly in the backs with the elusive Serevi at full back, the Saracen Nicky Little at out-half and Vili Satala in the centre.
Satala missed the Welsh game because his club Harelquins refused to release him despite urging from the Fijian management who were backed by the IRB. Harlequins insisted that the necessary paperwork had not arrived in time to secure the players release.
