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."

1. Tuki Raimona
2. Rhys Marshall

4. Nick Ross
5. Christian Lloyd
