Solo Mara to present Flying Fijians jerseys

Fiji’s high commissioner to United Kingdom Solo Mara will be presenting the chosen Flying Fijians 23-match-day squad with their jerseys ahead of their Test against England at 3.30am Sunday (Fiji Time).

The new-look Fiji jerseys will feature a new addition with the Poppy flower added to the Fiji crest already printed on it.

This according to a Fiji Rugby statement is the team’s way of paying tribute to the many men and women who fought in the war to commemorate Poppy day which falls on 11 November (local time) the day after the Flying Fijians take on the might of England.

The flower is symbolic all over the world in the remembrance of soldiers who died during the two World Wars and other conflicts.

In an interview with FijiLive, Flying Fijians team mamager Aseri Rokoura said they will tomorrow finalise their 23-member match-day squad from which head coach Inoke Male will name his starting line-up and reserves that will be announced 1am Friday (Fiji Time) at their Lensbury Hotel camp.

Three players in Samu Wara, Apisalome Ratuniyarawa and Aisea Natoga will be hoping to be included in the 23-match day squad to earn their first Test caps for Fiji.
