Fiji Airways Flying Fijians head coach John McKee is impressed with the performance of Josh Matavesi, Semi Radradra and Josua Tuisova during the Barbarians 63-45 win over England yesterday.

Speaking to SUNsports, McKee said Radradra is a quality player and is a great inclusion to the Flying Fijians squad for the June Test matches.

“It is good to watch Matavesi, Radradra and Tuisova during the match as they were in impressive form,” McKee said.

“It’s good to see Radradra in such good form just before the series. He will be very important for us across the June series and also as we head towards the 2019 Rugby World Cup.”

Matavesi played at second five eight while Radradra was at centre and Tuisova on the wing.

 

GOING INTO CAMP

McKee confirmed that most of the overseas-based players in the Flying Fijians squad are now in the country as they get ready to go into camp today.

He said big winger Nemani Nadolo and Timoci Nagusa are involved with Montpellier as they play in this weekend’s Top 14 final in Paris.

‘The same also goes for Radradra and Tuisova, so they will be in by next week.

“There is still a lot of work in front of us not just this Test matches but looking towards the 2019 Rugby World Cup. So we must really make the most of it while in camp.”
