All players have to prove worth: McKee

The players that have been called up to attend the Vodafone Flying Fijians camp next month will need to prove their worth for selection in the Maori All Blacks match as well as the Pacific Nations Cup.
National coach, John McKee says no player is guaranteed a spot in the final team, regardless of their experience and the clubs they hail from.
He adds selection will be based on form.
“It is a training squad; it’s not a team announcement. There are still some players who are tied up in Super Rugby, some who were in the Top 14 final last week in France. Some who are not included in this initial group but you will see we’ve got a very good pool of top class players to choose from so it’s going to be a very interesting couple of weeks.”
McKee released a forty-member squad on Wednesday to attend the team camp in Suva on July 1st-4th.
The Flying Fijians will host the Maori All Blacks on July 11th at the ANZ Stadium before taking on Tonga in the PNC opener the following week at the same venue.
