Fiji coach head coach Inoke Male has been forced into two late change for Fiji's squad for their northern hemisphere tour.
Exeter's Sireli Naqelevuki has been called up to replace Josaia Lotawa after the centre failed a fitness test. Meanwhile fullback Aisea Natoga comes into the team to replace scrum-half Nemia Kenatale, which leaves the Melbourne Rebels' Samu Wara to provide cover at scrumhalf for established duo, Nikola Matawalu and Kelemedi Bola.
