Vodafone Fiji Bati winger Sunia Turuva is set to miss Sunday’s Pacific Bowl final against Papua New Guinea with an ongoing calf injury.

He suffered the injury in the process of scoring a try against the Cook Islands in week two of the Pacific Championships.

Super League speedster Jason Qareqare comes in on the wing as he did last weekend while Dragons winger Mikaele Ravalawa shifts to the centres.

In better news for the Bati, Kitione Kautoga has been named on the bench to return from a back injury after also missing last week’s game against PNG.

The Kumuls, meanwhile, have centre Rodrick Tai back on deck from a knee injury but Mesake Ravonu (head knock) and Mackenzie Yei (knee) will miss the Bowl final.

The match kicks off at 5pm on Sunday.
