11:07 am on 23 November 2012

The Flying Fijians have made four changes to their starting side as they look to end their European Tour on a winning note against Georgia in Tbilisi.

Setefano Somoca comes into the front row for Deacon Manu and will also take over the captaincy.

Apisalome Ratuniyarawa comes into the second row, with Api Naikatini and Iliesa Ratuva shuffling positions.

In the backline the core remains from the team thumped 53-0 by Ireland A, but with Saula Radidi and Aisea Natoga earning starts at centre and right wing.

Head coach Inoke Male says after three straight losses the team is deperate to end in a positive fashion.

"It's really important for us because if we have to bring in more locals to play in international competitions. We need to win the game for our fans back home and the standings."
