August 27, 2018 12:32 am
Star Melbourne Rising recruit Isi Naisarani and Rob Valetini are among the 33-man squad named for the 2018 NRC campaign.
Naisarani, who has been recruited from the Brumbies is expected to debut against the Fiji Airways Drua team in the weekend.
The Fijian star has spent much of the last month training with the Wallabies but won’t become eligible for Australia until next year.
The Rising squad also includes back row brothers Sakaraia Noa and George Noa plus Wallabies winger Sefa Naivalu.
Also in the team is Kemu Valetini, a 19-year-old flyhalf whose older brother Rob is classed as one of the top players in the side.
The Melbourne Rising faces the Drua at 3pm at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori on Saturday.
