Sevu Reece "would love to play for Fiji" - McKee

May 2, 2019 4:06 pm

Fiji-born and Crusaders wing Sevu Reece is on Fiji’s Rugby World Cup radar but his contract situation may prevent him from turning out for his country of birth, according to head coach John McKee.

Radio NZ reports, the 22 year old has lit up Super Rugby this season, scoring six tries in five appearances for the defending champions.

Having been called into the squad as an injury replacement for fellow Fijian Manasa Mataele, the Nadi-born flyer has seized his opportunity, forcing the competition’s top try-scorer.

Fiji Airways Flying Fijians coach John McKee met with Reece while he was in New Zealand two weeks ago and said his international future remained up in the air.

Reece moved to New Zealand in 2014 to attend Hamilton Boys High School and made his provincial debut for Waikato in 2016.

He’s now eligible to represent both New Zealand and Fiji but, like many dual-eligible players, must weight up the lure of playing international rugby against the ensuring his immediate future.
