Leawere names Fijian Warriors run-on team for Manuma Samoa clash

Swire Shipping Fijian Warriors Head Coach Kele Leawere has named his line-up to take on Manuma Samoa in their first match of the Fiji Rugby Invitational Series at HFC Bank Stadium in Suva on Saturday.

“We have a good mix of the players which includes the Fijian Drua players, some provincial players who have put their hands up during the season and a few Under-20 players,” said Leawere.

“At the end of the day, it’s all about building Pathways development and making sure that everybody gets a chance to have a run.

Leawere said he is expecting the experienced players to assist [ Tevita] Ikanivere in guiding the team against Manuma Samoa on Saturday.

“He is a leader on and off the field so it’s important to have someone that players look up to and having Tevita Ikanivere there and his experience, it will be easy for the boys to gel together. Playing Samoa will always be physical and it will be good for the players to have an international game after COVID-19. The important thing is to go out there and enjoy plus for them to show the talent so they can progress to senior teams.”

The game kicks off at 3pm.
