Pacific Islanders Rugby Alliance side has no injury problems

11:06 am on 15 November 2006

The Pacific Islanders Rugby Alliance is nursing a few injuries, but everyone should be available for selection for their test against Scotland at Murrayfield this weekend.

The side lost 38-20 to Wales at the weekend.

Forwards coach Mike Casey says the forwards have trained well this week and the props in particular are jumping out of their skins ahead of Saturday's match.

The side to play Scotland will be named Thursday night.

Meanwhile, the Fijian winger Rupeni Caucaunibuca has joined the side.

Caucau, who has a history of chronic absence from games, missed the Wales test in Cardiff last weekend, apparently because he had mislaid his passport when playing for Agen against Gloucester in the Heineken Cup.
