Domolailai, Jim join as Male mulls changes

Flying Fijians head coach Inoke Male will give all players who did not play against England a run against Gloucester when they go head-to-head at 8.45am at Kingsholm Stadium Wednesday (Fiji Time).

Also confirmed to run against Gloucester are France-based Timoci Matanavou and Josefa Domolailai.

The changes are part of Male’s vision to give all players a chance to play, particularly the local players, ahead of the Rugby World Cup 2015 in England.

“This is part of the build up and reshaping Fiji preparing for 2015 RWC,” team manager Aseri Rokoura told FijiLive.

“It’s obvious that Fijians tend to deviate from the natural Fijian style of rugby once they play for overseas club. There are positive outcomes from it as it takes only short while to bring out that flair again.”

 He will and as usual will give the opportunity for players to play, Rokoura said of Male’s selection.

The squad is injury-free and will have their captain’s run at 9am tomorrow (Fiji Time).

Fiji lost to England 54-12 in their first of four Northern Tour games. The Flying Fijians play Ireland XVs on 18 November and wrap up their campaign against Georgia on 25 November.
