Wests Tigers outside backs Kevin Naiqama and Taane Milne have retained their spots for Fiji’s World Cup quarterfinal against New Zealand this Saturday in Wellington.

Naiqama will again captain the side from fullback, while Milne — who has scored or assisted more tries than any player at the World Cup so far — will line up in the right centre position.

Fiji have named the same run-on side that defeated Italy in Canberra last weekend, with Joe Lovodua, Jacob Saifiti, Junior Roqica and Benjamin Nakubuwai rounding out the bench.

Kickoff for the match is at 7:30pm local time (5:30pm AEDT) with live coverage via Channel 7.
