Backrower Sisa Koyamaibole and flyhalf Waisea Luveniyali will miss Fiji's one-off rugby Test against New Zealand on Friday after being sent off in last week's Pacific Nations Cup match against Japan.

Luveniyali was suspended for four weeks and Koyamaibole for two weeks by International Rugby Board judicial officer Mosese Naivalu at a hearing in Suva.

Fiji officials were due to announce their team for the All Blacks Test on Saturday but delayed the announcement until Monday to await the outcome of the hearing and the New Zealand government's decision on visa eligibility.

New Zealand has refused visas to members of the Fiji military and their families since a 2006 military coup in the Pacific nation.
