Warriors Gear Up  For Tour

Telecom Fijian Warriors is gearing for their tour of Uruguay later this month.

Coach Senirusi Seruvakula said with the Pacific Nations Cup in July and the 2015 Rugby World Cup in September, the players had a lot to prove.

“Our main focus on this tour is to get our local boys exposed to playing on the international stage,” Seruvakula said.

“We want to get our players experienced and we cannot do that if we do not expose them to all levels of rugby.

“With major tournaments coming up like the PNC, a few of the players have put up their hands and shown interest.

“This tour will be a good opportunity for the players to showcase the talent that they have got.”

Joining the squad next week will be three overseas-based players; Apisai Naikatini, Peni Ravai and Kirwan Sandy, who were requested to join the team by Vodafone Flying Fijians coach John McKee.

“The Uruguay tour will be used as a platform to see which players are likely to be a part of the team going to the Rugby World Cup.”

The side will head into camp this week in Nadave and will head to Nadi for their second week of camp before they fly out.

The team will depart Nadi on May 18.
