The Fiji Rugby Union has today released the names of a strong Fiji Airways Flying Fijians team for the Fiji November Internationals 2017.

The team consists of both local and overseas based players and sees the inclusion of Fiji Airways Drua players, Joeli Veitayaki, Mosese Ducivaki,

Ratunaisa Navuma, Mosese Voka, Frank Lomani and Alivereti Veitokani.

Also included in the side are New Zealand based Ropate Rinakama and Toulouse based Semi Kunatani.

Fiji Airways Flying Fijians Coach, John McKee says that he is very pleased to announce a strong squad to represent Fiji in the Fiji Airways Flying

Fijians November tour to Europe and in what will be a very challenging Test Series. We are happy to give the local players in the Fiji Airways Drua

Team an opportunity to international level competition.

“On the back of some good results across June and July we must now step up and perform successfully in Europe in November.”

“We have a challenging itinerary as Italy will be a tough opposition at home and Ireland beat both World No. 1 and No. 2 ranked teams (New Zealand & England) across 2016-17.”

“To be successful we will need our players to arrive at assembly ready to bring their ‘A’ game and to continue to work hard to build on the gains

made across the June and July Test match series.”

The team will kick off their campaign with the Reg. 9 Camp in Toulouse, France from 30 October to 1 November 2017. Fiji Airways Flying Fijians November Tour Matches:
