Fijian ‘Tahs’ Volavola, Taqele In
Waratahs playmaker Ben Volavola and winger Taqele Naiyaravoro are most likely to be the only two new inclusions in the Vodafone Flying Fijians extended list for the 2015 Rugby World Cup.
Head coach John McKee confirmed the duo have expressed their interest to join the Fijian squad.
“I have been talking to Ben Volavola and it’s getting close to a point in which I think he will declare himself available for Fiji,” he said.
“I spoke to Taqele in Sydney two weeks ago and he has expressed to me his desire to play for Fij.”
The duo were not listed on McKee’s initial 53 member squad which was released last week.
Matson given green light
Crusaders assistant coach Tabaiwalu Matson will be part of the RWC management team.
“Tabaiwalu will be with our RWC management team , he’s the assistant coach for the Maori All Blacks and he will be joining us after their game against the New Zealand Barbarians.
“He will travel with us to USA and Canada and has promised to bring all the analysis he’s done about Fiji.
The squad will march into camp on July 1.
