Manu confirmed as Fiji skipper

Scarlets prop Deacon Manu has been confirmed as captain of Fiji for Saturday's QBE international against England at Twickenham.

The 33-year-old, who has 12 caps to his name, led Fiji on their 2010 tour of Europe and in last year's Rugby World Cup.

"Manu has led the team before and has shown good leadership skills," said Fiji coach Inkike Male. "With his experience and the respect the boys have in him, I am confident that he has the qualities in him to not only lead the front row, but the whole team."
