Furthermore, prop Dunamis Lui has been named on the interchange in lieu of hooker Siliva Havili and joins fellow prop Mike Cooper and utilities Will Matthews and Jake Marketo.

"Benji is suffering from a minor hamstring strain which has occured due to stiffness within the back and is not fit to compete," said Director of Performance and Medical Tony Ayoub.

"This has come as a result of the extensive travelling and short five-day turnaround in between fixtures and, given it is so early in the season,  the medical staff did not want to take a risk on his health."
