Flying Fijians head coach Glen Ella has named 12 overseas based players in his starting fifteen to take on Scotland at Murrayfield on Sunday morning.

Among them are Llanelli Scarlets prop Deacon Manu and 19-year-old Exeter Chiefs player Josh Matavesi - both of whom will earn their first caps for the Flying Fijians.

The three local based players in the starting line-up are prop Alefoso Yalayalatabua, hooker Viliame Veikoso and number eight Asaeli Boko.

Ella has named second five-eighth Seremaia Bai as captain of the team.

Ella says Bai is an experienced player who is currently in a rich vein of form.
