SWIRE Shipping Fijian Latui coach Senirusi Seruvakula has named a powerful 23-member squad for their first match in Global Rapid Rugby against Kagifa Samoa at Churchill Park tomorrow.

Seruvakula has opted for an experienced squad with Fiji Airways Flying Fijians players Eroni Mawi and Mesulame Dolokoto leading the front row.

Veteran forward Mosese Voka has once again been given the nod to captain the side.

Seruvakula said “All the players are healthy and have been responding well in the training especially after three rounds of the Skipper Cup.”

He said it will be a big moment for number eight Timoci Davu of Nadroga and Namosi’s Netava Koroisau who are to make their international debut for a national team tomorrow.

“These two players have been playing some good rugby this season and have been working hard in the training hence they have booked a sport in the final team,” he said.

Star half back Frank Lomani will miss the match as he continues to nurse a minor injury sustained during the Skipper Cup match against Nadi last weekend.

The back-line is packed with experienced players in the likes of Apisalome Waqatabu, Apete Daveta, John Stewart and Lepani Raiyala.

The Swire Shipping Fijian Latui faces Kagifa Samoa at 3.10pm at Churchill Park in Lautoka tomorrow.
