Nicky Little returns to Fiji team

Flyhalf Nicky Little will return from suspension to play for Fiji against Italy in a rugby union international at Monza on Saturday.

Little, Fiji's leading pointscorer in tests, has been recalled after serving an 11-week ban for striking an opponent while playing in an English premiership match for Saracens.

He replaces Jack Prasad at flyhalf in one of three changes to the Fiji team that struggled to a 26-17 win over Portugal in Lisbon last weekend, the Fiji Rugby Union said Thursday.

Kele Leawere joins the starting lineup at lock in place of the injured Isoa Domolailai and Kameli Ratuvou has been named on the wing in place of speedster Sireli Bobo.

Coach Wayne Pivac has yet to name his reserves for the match between teams ranked ninth (Fiji) and 11th in world rugby.

Fiji's preparation for Saturday's match was disrupted when their luggage was lost on a flight between Portugal and Italy, leaving many players without boots or training gear, AP reports.
