Fiji has named a 28 strong rugby squad for next month's Junior World Cup in South Africa, with six overseas based players complementing a local core.

Aca Simolo and Lea Matayavusa have both been retained from last year's squad.

Head coach Sale Sorovaki has also included New Zealand-based duo Michael Little and Alex Hodgeman, saying they will offer much needed experience.

Fiji's first match in Pool A is against Wales, with defending champions New Zealand and Samoa also in the same pool.
