Vulivuli and Murimurivalu to miss World Cup qualifiers
June 24, 2017 6:26 pm
The Vodafone Flying Fijians will be without fullback Kini Murimurivalu and centre Albert Vulivuli for the World Cup qualifiers against Tonga and Samoa.
The wives of the two are expected to give birth anytime soon and both return to France to be with them on this special occasion.
Coach, John McKee, has confirmed that the duo depart for France tomorrow.
“Kini and Albert will not be travelling to Samoa and Tonga as their wives are about to give birth. They return on Monday. However Kini has said that if the delivery happens on time then he will be back for the second game but I don’t know if he has spoken about it to his wife.”
Vulivuli and Murimurivalu were impressive in the team’s 27-22 win over Scotland yesterday.
A 28 member team will travel to face the Pacific rivals next month.
