THE final 32-member national squad for the International Rugby Board Junior World Championship in New Zealand has been named.

This was done after the second trial match against Nadroga on Friday.

Fiji under-20 assistant coach Iliesa Tanivula said the players are to report to the Fiji Rugby Union headquarters in Suva tomorrow.

Tanivula said they would be looking for more warm-up matches for the team.
