He has opted for six backs led by skipper Jerry Tuwai while Alasio Naduva is the 13th player and will be on standby for London 7s.
Baber has been impressed with Tuisova plus Radradra and says they will bring in a lot of qualities into the team.
“They showing leadership qualities in terms of their knowledge and experience and the players around are obviously challenged by them coming in and obviously holding on to positions but its good to have that level of competition with the group.”
