Sport: Two players called into battered Fijian rugby squad

11:28 am on 14 June 2012

Flying Fijians coach Inoke Male admits there's a few battered bodies amongst his squad after a busy travel load over the past fortnight.

Fiji opened their 2012 season with a win over Japan in Nagoya followed by a three point loss to Samoa in Tokyo last weekend.

The team arrived home yesterday ahead of Saturday's one-off test against Scotland in Lautoka and Male says it's been a gruelling few weeks.

"At the moment we've got all the players who participated in the PNC but some of them have niggling injuries due to the game and travelling time. We've included two of our boys who are in the extended squad - they are"
