Naqelevuki named in 30-strong Fijian Squad

Fiji manager Sam Domoni has announced his 30-man squad for November’s Rugby Union tests against France, Italy and Wales including Sireli Naqelevuki who recently joined Exeter Chiefs.

Domoni has gone global and called up players based with clubs in England, Wales, France, Japan, New Zealand, Australia, and Fiji.

Naqelevuki fell out of favour with Super 14 finalists the Stormers this season and has now joined Exeter Chiefs who play in the English Premiership.

Fiji’s tour kicks off with France in Nantes on November 13 in the first meeting between the two sides since the group stages of the 2003 World Cup when France prevailed 61-18.

Fiji then face Wales on November 19 in Cardiff and Italy in Modena on November 27.
