It’s confirmed that our National Rugby League (NRL) stars have booked their spot in the 24-member Vodafone Fijian Bati squad for the World Cup.

These players are Kevin Naiqama, Jayson Bukuya, Apisai Koroisau, Akuila Uate, Kane Evans and the list goes on.

This Saturday’s Battle of the Bati between Overseas Bati led by James Storer and Viliame Rakuli captained-Fiji Residents is to determine who makes up the rest of the squad.

The clash is to allow head coach Mick Potter to finalise his squad and the players he needs to step in as replacements.

This is because key players Korbin Sims, Waqa Blake and Jacob Saifaiti are down injured and their conditions would be assessed before the final announcement is made at the ANZ Stadium, Suva on Saturday.
