Matavesi on bench for Wallabies

An unused replacement in the defeat to England on the opening day of the Rugby World Cup, Josh Matavesi has again been named on the Fiji bench, for Wednesday’s game against Australia.

The Pool A fixture at the Millennium Stadium will be the Wallabies’ first of the competition and following an opening weekend that also saw Wales get off the mark with a bonus point win against Uruguay in Cardiff on Sunday. 

With their next two games played at the Millennium Stadium, (they also play Wales there on Thursday 1st October), Fiji are now based in Swansea for the next 10 days.

Australia v Fiji kicks off at 4.45pm on Wednesday.
