12:52 pm on 12 November 2014

The Fiji rugby team have received reinforcements as they try to reverse their fortunes heading into this weekend's test against Wales.

Josh Matavesi and Vereniki Goneva are now in camp in Cardiff.

Matavesi is back from injury and Goneva has arrived now after resolving some visa issues.

Despite being thrashed by France 40-15 last week, coach John McKee says morale is very good and the players are focused on improving .

Mckee says at test match level against tier-one nations, Fiji need to be at their very best in all aspects of the game to be competitive.

He says everything counts and as seen last week, good teams take their opportunities when they get them and will punish mistakes.

Meanwhile Wales have made eight changes to their side to face Fiji, with Gethin Jenkins returning to the starting line-up to lead the side.

Jenkins will captain the side for a fourth time and is included in a new-look front row.

Ospreys hooker Scott Baldwin makes his first start for his country and they will pack down alongside Samson Lee.
