Flying Fijians centre Nemani Nadolo is available for the Vodafone Flying Fijians Northern Tour.

Nadolo, who was in doubt for the tour because of an ankle injury, has been given the all clear to play and would be featuring in the test against Wales on November 15 and USA on November 21.

Vodafone Flying Fijians head coach John McKee cleared the air and confirmed that Nadolo would be joining the team in Europe.

“When he was talking to us earlier on he said that he was going to his home in Australia to see the specialist for his ankle injury,” he said.

“We did not know how long it will take but he has confirmed that he was okay to play.

“He would join us in Europe and we are looking forward to meet him but he will miss our test against France on November 8,” he said.

“He called me yesterday to confirm he would be joining us in Europe.”

McKee is focusing on getting it right in the engagement with the forwards upfront.

“We have been working hard with our forwards especially on ruck situations and scrums as our motive is to win quick balls,” he said.

“I’m impressed with the way these players have been delivering during training as we know France would have the best forwards and we will prepare accordingly.”

McKee was impressed with their friendly match against Georgia.

“All players are fine and there is no injury in camp and we would like to keep it that way.”

Fiji takes on France next Sunday.
