A new halves pairing will drive the backline this week, with Setaita Railumu getting a start at halfback alongside Jenifer Ravutia, who will be the starting flyhalf.

Buna and Merewairita Neivosa are on the wings, while Merewai Cumu and Vani Arei are the centres, and Luisa Tisolo starts at fullback.
