Irish fans in for a treat as Montpellier star Nadolo comes into Fiji side for Aviva clash
Flying Fijian wing Nemani Nadolo has been picked to start this Saturday's test against Ireland at the Aviva Stadium.
The Montpellier wrecking ball, who scored two tries at the RDS against Leinster in the Champions Cup last month, was initially on standby for Fiji but was called into the squad this week after missing last Saturday's defeat to Italy.
The mammoth task of marking Nadolo will fall on Darren Sweetnam, who will make his first ever international start this weekend.
Nadolo is the star man behind the scrum, but at second row Fiji have another world class talent in Leone Nakarawa, who played for Racing 92 at Thomond Park against Munster last month.
Outside of that gifted duo, there is also some talent on the bench, with Glasgow scrum-half Niko Matawalu - who destroyed Leinster in the PRO 14 two weeks ago - set to enter the fray at some stage, alongside former Leicester star Vereniki Goneva.
