Fiji just got a little more confident with the announcement of their 2013 RLWC squad. Rugby League veteran and all round good guy Petero Civoniceva will be leading the team throughout their World Cup Campaign.
To make the announcement even more interesting Civoniceva will be taking on his old Kangaroo team mates in the 2nd week of the World Cup tournament when Fiji come up against Australia at Langtree park in St Helens.
Wes Naiqama has been named as vice-captain with a total of 21 players announced and three places still up for grabs to round out a 24 man Squad.
