SIX overseas-based reps have been named in the 28-member Fiji under-20 squad for the Junior World Cup (JWC) in South Africa next month.
Coach Sale Sorovaki revealed the squad at the Fiji Rugby Union head quarters in Suva yesterday.
New Zealand-based Alex Hodgeman, Joketani Raikabula, Michael Little, Timoci Seruwalu alongside Australia-based Samuela Kerevi and France-based Sevanaia Galala have got the nod to don the national jumper at the JWC.
Skipper Lea Matayavusa and Aca Simolo are the only players from last year's team, which finished on a remarkable sixth spot.
Former Digicel Fiji sevens rep, Avenisi Vusuinubu, who is bound for France, is one of the four non-travelling reserves named in team.
The team marched into camp at Queen Elizabeth Barracks in Nabua yesterday before flying out on May 30.
The national side is pooled along with defending champions New Zealand, Samoa and Wales.
The team plays its first game against Wales on June 4.
