Fiji A have named a relatively young squad to take on the Australian Tertiaries side this Sunday, October 2nd with the average age being just 23.
The match which was originally scheduled for Concord Oval had to be moved due to the Wests Tigers making the NRL grand final. The Tigers will be needing to utilise the venue.
The new venue will now be Mascot Oval which is situated off Macintosh Street, Mascot. Kick off time will be 12pm, Sunday October 2nd. For people going to the NRL grand final there will be plenty of time to reach Homebush Bay.
The Australian Tertiaries side who have just returned from a 4 game tour of Samoa, Tonga and New Zealand will face a strong Fijian line up with many up and coming stars. Don't be surprised to see a few of them break into grade next year similar to Wes Naiqama(St.George Illawarra Dragons) who played for Fiji A last year against Malta and is now a regular first grader.
Admission to the game is $5 for adults with children U/16's free.
