36 players to march into camp for Flying Fijians
August 11, 2015 4:25 am
Vodafone Flying Fijians coach, John McKee will be keeping an eye out for World Cup hopefuls, Nemani Nadolo and Netani Talei as he works out on his final squad.
Nadolo has recovered from an abdominal muscle injury sustained against the Maori All Blacks last month while Talei is on the mend from a foot injury from last year.
McKee is looking to see what the two players have to offer during the team’s training camp this week.
“He’s (Nadolo) back in the country. Netani Talei will also be joining the squad and we’ll have a good look at him and possibly including him in the Rugby World Cup. He arrives back into Fiji tomorrow.”
A 36-member squad will march into camp in Suva from tomorrow minus veteran flyhalf, Seremaia Bai and Jerry Yanuyanutawa, who are both in doubt for selection.
McKee expects to name his final World Cup squad next week.
Meanwhile the Flying Fijians have moved up one spot in the world rankings to 9th position and Tonga on 10th followed by Samoa in 11th.
New Zealand still leads the standings, with Ireland in second ahead of Australia in third followed by England, South Africa, Wales, France and Argentina.
