6:45 am on 8 September 2009

Former All Blacks captain Mike Brewer has been appointed to the coaching panel for the Fiji national rugby team.

Brewer will team up with former Australian legend and 7s coach, Glen Ella, to guide the Fijians through November's Northern Hemisphere tour.

Former Wallaby lock, Samu Domoni and former Fiji number eight, Inoke Male are the two local men appointed to the panel.

The FRU Chairman, Bill Gavoka says Ella and Brewer's appointments are specifically for the Northern Tour but they'll be preparing Domoni to take over as Fiji Rugby's head coach.

The four will start their work this weekend with a fitness test for local players in Sigatoka.

Brewer has been coaching in Scotland.
