Team Lists: Fiji v Italy

Once again, there are plenty of familiar Canberra names involved in the third week of the World Cup.

Paul Vaughan and Terry Campese’s Italian side are looking for a win against Fiji to keep their hopes of progressing to the knockout stage alive. The Azzuri will face Fiji on Friday night but need to win by almost 50 points to progress.

Despite missing out the last two weeks, Campese has been named to start at five-eighth while Vaughan has been named to start at prop.

Former Queanbeyan Blues player Jordan Rapana and the New Zealand side are up against the massive Tongan side. The teams face off for first place in the group and will be hoping to avoid the red hot Australian Kangaroos.

The Kangaroos have named their side for their final group match against the Lebanon Cedars. Josh Dugan is set to be rested but has been named in the reserves, while former Queanbeyan Kangaroo player Travis Robinson has been named on the wing for Lebanon.
