November 22, 2014 3:53 am
Nippy playmaker Amenoni Nasilasila has been roped into the Vodafone Fiji 7s squad for the Dubai and South Africa tournaments next month.
The Ratu Filise pivot is one of three new inclusion into Ben Ryan’s 12-man squad alongside Yamacia flyer Jone Qorovarua and veteran Nasoni Roko.
Ryan has retained nine players from the squad that captured the Gold Coast 7s title last month.
“I think everytime we name a Fijian team its goinig to come with a sentence. Its an exciting team; we scored more points than any team in the series in Gold Coast. We have added two sensation wingers to the team and Amenoni (Nasilasila) who missed out earlier through injury. It’s a tough and rugged team as well.”
The players in the final 12-man squad are:
Apisai Domolailai , Apisalome Waqatabu, Amenoni Nasilasila, Isake Katonibau, Jasa Veremalua, Jone Qorovarua, Nasoni Roko, Osea Kolinisau (Captain), Savenaca Rawaca, Semi Kunatani, Jerry Tuwai and Vatemo Ravouvou.
The squad broke camp from Uprising Resort in Deuba this afternoon and departs our shores next Thursday.
The Dubai 7s will be held on December 5th-6th.
