Fiji call for Josh

Osprey set to go head to head with regional colleagues at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday.

The Ospreys’ contingent in Warren Gatland’s Wales selection to face Fiji at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday will come up against a familiar foe in the form of Josh Matavesi, who has been named at outside half for the opposition. 

It will be Matavesi’s seventh international cap but his first for almost exactly two years, his last international appearance coming at Twickenham in November 2012 when he came off the bench against England.

The 24-year old missed Fiji’s defeat to France last Saturday due to a shoulder injury.

Fiji side to face Wales: M Talebula; W Nayacalevu, V Gonevam N Nadolom A Tikoirotuma; J Matavesi, N Matawalu; C Ma’afu, S Koto, M Saulo, L Nakarawa, A Ratuniyarawa, D Waqaniburotu, A Qera (capt), M Matadigo.

Replacements: T Talemaitoga, J Yanuyanutwa, I Colati, T Cavubati, M Ravulo, H Seniloli, J Ralulu, T Nagusa.

Meanwhile, Dmitri Arhip will travel home this weekend to feature for Moldova in their FIRA Championship game against Poland in Chisinau on Saturday.
