Fiji include Huddersfield Giants, Salford Red Devils and Hull FC stars in squad for Saturday

Fiji need a win against Scotland to secure their place in the quarter-finals as they hope to make it to a fourth consecutive World Cup semi-final.

A win against Scotland would set up a game against world number one ranked team New Zealand in the last eight and a long awaited re-match after Fiji stunned New Zealand in the quarter-finals of the 2017 World Cup.

As they look to secure their place in the last eight, they’ve named their 19-man squad for the last group stage game.

Former St Helens star and Huddersfield Giants bound centre Kevin Naiqama is named alongside Hull FC winger Mitieli Vulikijapani.

Potential Super League target Brandon Wakeham is also named and will start in the halves whilst NRL star Apisai Koroisau will also feature in the spine.

Netane Masima will likely be named in the halves alongside Wakeham.

Salford Red Devils prop King Vuniyayawa will also likely feature in the side as will Leigh Leopards forward Ben Nakubuwai.

Former Hull KR man Korbin Sims has also been named in the squad as he nears the end of his career.

A player with NRL experience, another man with NRL experience in the shape of Viliame Kikau will make things tough on Scotland.
