Mika to miss Wales match

Elenoa Baselala In Townsville, Australia
Thursday, November 02, 2017

MIKA Ravalawa will be missing out the match against Wales this Sunday following the announcement of the Vodafone Fiji Bati 21-member team yesterday.

The side will be further reduced to 19 on Saturday and then 17 an hour before the match begins.

The 17 announced are Kevin Naiqama (c), Suliasi Vunivalu, Taane Milne, Akuila Uate, Marcelo Montoya, Jarryd Hayne, Henry Raiwalui, Ashton Sims, Apisai Koroisau, Eloni Vunakece, Brayden Wiliame, Tui Kamikamica, Joe Lovodua, Jacob Saifiti and Junior Roqica.

The other four players are James Storer, Pio Seci, Salesi Faingaa and Sitiveni Moceidreke.

Roqica did not play last week but Kane Evan's injury has opened the gap for him and Vunakece who started from the bench against Wales.

If coach Mick Potter does not change his 17 by Sunday evening, then it is the same line-up that defeated USA 58-12.

Fiji currently has only 22 players in its squad, two short of the required 24 with injuries to Korbin Sims and Kane Evans.

Australia based Pio Sokobalavu has been identified to replace Sims but no one has been announced for Evans.

Meanwhile, the Fijian community in Townsville hosted some players to a barbecue at Crystal Creek yesterday.
