Tigers duo named in Fiji team to face All Blacks

Kini Murimurivalu and Nemani Nadolo have been named in the Fiji matchday squad to face the All Blacks in Dunedin on Saturday, July 10.

The Leicester Tigers pair are included in the outside-backs for the first of back-to-back test matches against New Zealand, with Nadolo on the left wing and Murimurivalu at full-back. 

Speaking about the side named, Fiji head coach Vern Cotter said: "Nemani has had a big season with Leicester with Kini Murimurivalu."

“We have been happy with the preparation, that hasn’t been ideal but when we see what’s happening in Fiji, we just want to play well and hopefully we will lift spirits on the island.  
"It’s cold in Dunedin but we will play under-covered roof, will be a dry ball game which suits us and we are going to play Fijian rugby which suits us and in which we good at."
