May 28, 2014 6:56 pm
Vodafone Flying Fijians coach John McKee and with the help of the New Zealand Rugby Union have cleared the air on the availability of Super Rugby Chiefs rep Asaeli Tikoirotuma and Crusaders wing Nemani Nadolo.
“We’ve been talking to the New Zealand Rugby Union about that and we received a letter from the NZRU yesterday confirming that the players will be available for that game."
Earlier reports out of NZ stated Tikoirotuma would not be available for the Rugby World Cup qualifier against the Cook Islands on June 28.
The NZ pair is expected to arrive in Fiji later this week to join those who are already in camp since yesterday.
Fiji now has less than a week to prepare for their first Test against Italy at the ANZ Stadium in Suva on June 7.
