SOLDIER Semesa Rokoduguni will become the first Fijian to represent England in the full code.

Rokoduguni has been named on the right wing for the English side to face the Barbarians at Twickenham on Monday morning.

Injury marred the 26-year-old's opportunity to feature for the shadow England team, (Saxons) against the Irish Wolfhounds. However, the man from Tailevu who is a lance corporal in the Royal Scots Dragoon Guard is ready for the rugby battle and serve England against the experienced Barbarians side that boast a total of 700 Test caps among its players such as Jimmy Cowan, Hosea Gear, James O'Connor, Rene Ranger, Joe Rokocoko and Andrew Hore.

RFU head of international player development Joe Lydon said; "This England squad is full of talent and will make for an entertaining match against a strong Barbarians side with over 700 caps between them.

"We see this match as an important development opportunity for the players and many of them gained valuable experience working with the senior squad and coaches over the last week before they departed for New Zealand.

"We have seen ten players involved in these Barbarians fixtures over the last two years who have gone on to get caps for England," he told www.bathchronicle.co.uk.
