New Zealand Under 20 Coach Rob Penney has named his team to take on Fiji in their final pool match of the Junior World Championship in South Africa early tomorrow.

The Under 20 side is looking to bounce back from last weekend's shock 6-9 loss to Wales - the first time New Zealand has dropped a game at the annual tournament.

Coach Penney said: "We know we needed to move on from that game against Wales and the boys know what they need to do against Fiji tomorrow. Fiji can be dangerous on attack, so it's important we take control and get the job done."

The New Zealand Under 20 team selected to play Fiji is:

1. Tuki Raimona

2. Rhys Marshall

3. Fraser Armstrong

4. Nick Ross

5. Christian Lloyd

6. Glen Preston

7. Jake Heenan

8. Taniela Manu

9. Jonathan Kitto

10. Ihaia West

11. Milford Keresoma

12. Pita Ahki

13. Jason Emery

14. Junior Tofa-Va'a

15. Matt Proctor


16. Nathan Harris

17. Eric Sione

18. Ofa Tuungafasi

19. Hugh Blake

20. Jordan Taufua

21. Scott Eade

22. Ope Peleseuma

23. Ambrose Curtis
