Fiji's side named Thursday to play Scotland in a one-off international here at Murrayfield on Saturday will feature Bath playmaker Nicky Little and Gloucester flanker Akapusi Qera.

Little has amassed nearly 650 points for the Pacific Islanders and will win his 64th cap this weekend.

Qera meanwhile plays alongside Scotland flanker Alasdair Strokosch at Gloucester .

Scotland won narrowly, 22-20, when the teams last met at the 2003 World Cup in Australia.

Since then, Fiji have become an established top-10 side and knocked Wales out of the 2007 Rugby World Cup.

They come into this match on the back of recent victories over Tonga, Samoa and Japan.

Fiji team to play Scotland in a one-off international at Murrayfield here on Saturday (1430GMT):

(15-1) Josh Matavesi; Vereneki Goneva, Gabirieli Lovobalavu, Seremaia Bai (capt), Napolioni Nalaga; Nicky Little, Moses Rauluni; Asaeli Boko, Akapusi Qera, Josefa Domolailai; Ifereimi Rawaqa, Wame Lewaravu; Deacon Manu, Vili Veikoso, Alefoso Yalayalatabua

Replacements: Graham Dewes, Sereli Ledua, Leone Nakarawa, Samu Bola, Waisale Vatuvoka, Jonetani Ratu, Nasoni Roko
