Former Fiji 7s rep, Jiuta Lutumailagi is expected to play a key role in the Fiji Bati nines team’s medal hunt in the Pacific Games next month.
Fiji coach, Maika Vunivere says he has been impressed by Lutumailagi’s form in training after only taking up the code last year in a nine’s tournament in Sigatoka.

We’ve been watching him (Lutumailagi) in the nines tournament last year. In our final trial, he was fit enough and he showed us he is keen to represent Fiji again in the Pacific Games.
The team will defend the gold medal Fiji won in 2007 in the then South Pacific Games in Samoa.
