Souths coach Michael Maguire is set to pull a ‘rabbit out of his hat’ with flying Fijian winger Sitiveni Moceidreke to set to make his NRL debut against the Roosters tonight, reports The 7th Tackle’s Josh Massoud.
Moceidreke is 22 years old. He's played one test for Fiji.
This means there's a reshuffle in the Souths side with John Sutton returning to the forwards, rising superstar Cody Walker goes back to 5/8 and Alex Johnston to fullback.
