Fiji have named their team to take on Ireland A in Dublin.

Yanuyanutawa teams up with Viliame Veikoso and Deacon Manu in the front row, while Leone Nakarawa and Api Naikatini come in at Locks.

Iliesa Ratuva and Malakai Ravulo are on the flanks with Nemani Nagusa retaining his position at No. 8.

Gloucester halfback Nicola Matawalu replaces Kelemedi Bola, and Jonetani Ralulu comes in at first five eight.

Other changes to the back line see the return of Vereniki Goneva who replaces Samu Wara in midfield.

Watisoni Votu has been retained on the left wing with Simeli Koniferedi claiming the other, and Metuisela Talebula slotting in at fullback.
