Fiji Airways Flying Fijians Coach John McKee has named a powerful side that includes outside centre Semi Radradra to face Scotland at Murrayfield this Sunday.      

The Flying Fijians will look to kick‑off their Northern tour on a positive note, as they prepare for a physical encounter against the Scots.

Campese Maafu, Sam Matavesi and Manasa Saulo will start in Fiji’s front‑row, with Leone Nakarawa and Tevita Cavubati the lock pairing.

Viliame Mata has been named in the back‑row alongside newly appointed captain Dominiko Waqaniburotu and Peceli Yato.

Setareki Tuicuvu earns his debut and will be well supported by the experience of Vereniki Goneva, Jale Vatubua, Ben Volavola, Frank Lomani and Metuisela Talebula.

McKee says the team can take confidence from their training and must now step up to impose their game plan under the intensity of Test match rugby.

The Flying Fijians will take on Scotland at 3.30am Sunday at Murrayfield Stadium.

Fiji:

15 Setareki Tuicuvu, 14 Metui Talebula, 13 Semi Radradra, 12 Jale Vatabua, 11 Vereniki Goneva, 10 Ben Volavola, 9 Frank Lomani, 8 Viliame Mata, 7 Peceli Yato, 6 Dominiko Waqaniburotu (c), 5 Leone Nakarawa, 4 Tevita Cavubati, 3 Manasa Saulo, 2 Sam Matavesi, 1 Campese Maafu

Replacements: 16 Mesulame Dolokoto, 17 Eroni Mawi, 18 Kalivate Tawake, 19 Albert Tuisue, 20 Semi Kunatani, 21 Henry Seniloli, 22 Alivereti Veitokani, 23 Eroni Vasiteri
