Tela Confirmed For No.10

Teti Tela will start at No.10 for the Flying Fijians against Ireland at the Avi­va Stadium in Dublin on Sun­day morning (Fiji time).

This was confirmed last night by Flying Fijians head coach, Vern Cotter.

He indicated that after Ire­land’s 19-16 victory over South Africa, the entire press had been focused on the Irish rugby team.

“The press is talking their team up and are barely looking at us,” Cotter said.

“It has to be as they are number one team in the world and they are slick and strong. The focus is more on their game against Australia, which is coming after our game.

“We’re seen to be a warm-up game, but we’ll take the oppor­tunities of playing the best team in the world.”

Cotter said he has named the line-up to the players but would make changes to the bench.

Fullback Kini Murimurivalu is ruled out with injury while Sireli Maqala is also under in­jury cloud.

Toulon’s Jiuta Wainiqolo is expected to pair up with Vinaya Habosi on the wings, with Se­tareki Tucuvu moving back to fullback.
