Mesulame Kunavula is now training with the Fiji 7s extended squad as they prepare for the Hong Kong 7s tournament.
Kunavula joined the training squad last week after his stint in Edinburgh this year.
Coach Gareth Baber hopes the inclusion of Kunavula in the national extended team will bring out positive competition amongst players.
“Mesu has joined the training squad. He came back from Edinburgh on Sunday and joined camp straight away. That was the agreement that he would come back and hit training straight away so his part of the training squad as well for this week.”
Baber says they had made an earlier agreement with Kunavula that he will be joining the training squad when he return from Scotland.
Meanwhile, Baber is expected to announce his final 13 member squad this week before they leave for Hong Kong on Thursday.
Fiji is pooled with Australia, New Zealand, and Kenya.
Fiji meets Kenya at 11.37pm next Friday in its opening pool match, they will then play Australia at 5.13pm Saturday before taking on New Zealand at 8.55pm Saturday.
The Hong Kong 7s will run through the 5th to the 7th of next month.
You can watch the entire tournament live on FBC TV.
