Tuwai happy with the inclusion of overseas players

May 10, 2018 6:05 pm

Fiji Airways men’s 7s captain Jerry Tuwai is looking forward to the inclusion of overseas-based players in the team for the World Cup.

This after coach Gareth Baber revealed he could include overseas-based players for the London and Paris tournaments and the Sevens World Cup.

“It will be good to have them as they will lift the level of competition against the local boys. They will see those big players coming with experience which will push the players to work hard. It will take rugby to another level and the fitness will go up which will help us as a team.”

Baber has received interest from players such as Semi Kunatani, Leone Nakarawa, Josua Tuisova, Semi Radradra and Nikola Matawalu.

Meanwhile, Fiji is pooled with New Zealand, Scotland and Argentina in the London 7s, which will be held on the 2nd and 4th of next month.
