Scotland rugby coach Gregor Townsend has reminded his players the threat that lanky forward Leone Nakarawa poses to them ahead of their test match this Saturday.

Townsend who coached Nakarawa in Glasgow last year knows how dangerous the Olympic Gold medalist can be with his offloads and vision.

Nakarawa played another grand game against Italy last weekend setting up a try for Jale Vatubua and showed some great offloading skills.

Meanwhile Townsend has reduced his touring party to a 30‑man squad which arrived last night.

He has also released two of his players’, flyhalf Finn Russell and prop Allan Dell to join the British and Irish Lions in New Zealand this week.

Fiji beat Scotland by 51-26 in 1998 at the ANZ Stadium.

The Vodafone Flying Fijians will host Scotland at 2.30pm Saturday at the ANZ Stadium and you can catch the live commentary on our sister station Viti FM 92.2FM.
