Two national Under 20 reps have been named in the Fiji Airways 7s squad for the Pacific games.
2017 QVS under 18 Deans fly-half Simione Kuruvoli and last year’s Ratu Navula College fullback Osea Waqa are in the 37 member squad released by FASANOC.
Kuruvoli and Waqa are part of the Baby Flying Fijians squad who are in Australia for the Oceania championship.
The pair have been recognized just like former under 20 reps Meli Derenalagi and Vilimoni Botitu who have been quite a revelation in the World Series this season.
Also included in the Pacific games squad is Amenoni Nasilasila who has an ongoing court case.
Former national volleyball rep Epeli Ratabacaca is also in the squad.
Team Fiji Chef-De-Mission to the Pacific Games Patrick Bower says no new inclusions will be made to any national side now.
“We now going to put them online for Samoa and it will go through the system and locked in. if they want to change and bring someone in and that’s too late that opportunity has gone.”
The Pacific Games will run through the 7th to the 20th of July in Samoa.
