Mataele, Sorovi called into Fiji squad

Crusaders winger Manasa Mataele and young Reds halfback Moses Sorovi have been named in the 33-member Flying Fijians squad to face the All Blacks in two test matches next month.

The pair featured well for their respective franchises in Super Rugby Trans-Tasman and should get their first cap against the former world champions.

Melbourne Rebels halfback Frank Lomani is the other Super Rugby player in the squad which boasts big names like Leone Nakarawa, Nemani Nadolo, Ben Volavola, Waisea Nayacalevu and Captain Levani Botia.

The Flying Fijians will meet the All Blacks in Dunedin on 10 July and the second and final test will be in Hamilton seven days later.
