21-man squad named for second World Cup group match against Fiji

Wales head coach John Kear has named a 21-man squad for Sunday's World Cup group match against Fiji in Townsville.

Chester Butler (concussion), Sam Hopkins (shoulder) and Matty Seamark (arm) aren't named because of injuries picked up in the opener with Papua New Guinea. 

However, the other 14 players who turned out for Wales in Port Moresby are in the 21.

Gavin Bennion, who linked up with the Wales squad in Townsville on Sunday night and has trained over the last two days, has been selected.

Halfback Danny Ansell has also been brought into the squad.

You can watch Wales in action live on Premier Sports between 8.30am and 10.30, while BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra will broadcast from 8.40am onwards. 

Extended highlights are on BBC Two at 4pm, with further highlights at 1.15pm on BBC Two Saturday, November 11.
