Nemani Nadolo

Fiji coach John McKee has named his team to play England in the Rugby World
Cup opening match at Twickeham Stadium, London on Friday.

Fiji have been able to include Crusaders winger Nemani Nadolo who missed the
Pacific Nations Cup which Fiji were crowned champions.

McKee’s backline will be controlled by former Waratah and Super Rugby winner
Ben Volavola.

“I am very pleased to be able to announce a very strong line-up for the
opening match of RWC2015,” said McKee.

“We have come through a very good preparation phase and are ready to
move into the competition.

“All our players are fit and available for selection,” McKee added.

“England is a very strong team and will be a difficult opponent at Twickenham.
We are looking forward to the challenge of this opening game.

“Our players have trained and played well throughout our preparation
and must now step up to the high level and intensity we expect on Friday evening
and throughout our Pool Matches, “McKee concluded.
