France based Clermont full-back Setareki Tuicuvu is expected to play a huge role in his debut for the Fiji Airways Flying Fijians in the upcoming November test matches in Europe.
Flying Fijians Coach, John McKee says Tuicuvu has been really impressive in the French Top 14 competition and is one of the potentials for the World Cup in Japan next year.
“He started I think in three games for Clermont this season and he started in a star studded team. To get a start in that kind of team and he is also regarded as one of the top players by the coaching staff in France. I think he is a young player that can really spark up in this November series and put himself for a spot in the Rugby World Cup.”
McKee has dropped skipper Akapusi Qera who has been without any club contract in France.
Dominiko Waqaniburotu will captain the side during their three test match next month.
Fiji begins its autumn test campaign against Scotland on the 10th of next month, then faces Uruguay seven days later and plays France in its last test match on the 24th of November.
