Romania-based Henry Seniloli is all set to hit the ground running when he joins the Fiji Airways Flying Fijians squad in camp in Suva today.

Head coach John McKee has named three halfbacks in the squad for the June internationals including Frank Lomani and Serupepeli Vularika.

“I want to thank the Lord for giving me another opportunity to play for Fiji as it is a dream to continue to be a Flying Fijian,” Seniloli said.

“Once you don that jumper, it keeps on motivating you to do more.

“But to play at home in front of your fans is an icing on the cake.”

The Akapusi Qera-captained Flying Fijians play Samoa on June 9 and  Georgia on June 16 at the ANZ  Stadium  in Suva and Tonga on June 23 at Churchill Park, Lautoka.

“There will be a new challenge in the June tests. “For me whoever is in good shape, who ever deserved to be the No. 9 should take it.

The Bau, Tailevu kingpin arrived at the Nadi International Airport yesterday with wife Salote and son George after he successfully assisted his Timișoara Saracens side to win the SuperLiga CEC Bank, the first division of Romanian profession rugby for the third straight seasons.

“We came back after winning the final and ready to hit the ground running when i joined the camp,” he said.

“The win has given me another motivation and always room for improvement in playing rugby.

Seniloli has another season with the side in Europe.

He made his debut for Fiji against Romania on November 23, 2013.
