FIJI-based players Osea Sadrau and Atunaisa Turagaiviu will feature for the Vodafone Fiji Bati in this Saturday's clash against the Toa Samoa.

They were included by coach Rick Stone in the 17-member team to take on the Pacific arch-rivals in the Four Nations qualifier match at the Sportingbet Stadium in Penrith, Australia.

The winner of the match, which kicks off at 9.30pm (Fiji time), will join Australia, New Zealand and England in the Four Nations competition to be played in October.

Fiji Bati team manager Mesake Navugona said the players were ready to take on Samoa, which had named a strong squad for this match.

He said the players had settled in well.

"The team has been in camp at the Chifley Hotel in Penrith from Monday and the boys have settled in well," Navugona said.

"We have just finished our first field session training at St Mary's League ground and the boys are showing keenness to play on Saturday."
