Lutumailagi In 9s Squad

Former national 7s rep Jiuta Lutumailagi has been included in the National Rugby League 9s squad.

Fiji National Rugby League 9s coach Maika Vunivere said the inclusion of Lutumailagi would boost the side as it prepares to defend their title in Papua New Guinea next month.

“Lutumailagi played for the Navosa rugby league team earlier in the year and has been in impressive form during the season,”Vunivere said.

“His inclusion in the side will be big boost knowing his experience from rugby union. He will definitely be a key player for us.

“We are preparing well and it will not be easy as PNG, Samoa, Tonga and Cook Islands will also want to win the title. But I believe my players will deliver.”

The players have been preparing in their different zones.

Bolstering the side alongside Lutumailagi would be senior players like Asaeli Sorovaki, Etika Rokobuli, Esira Dokuni and Jone Sariri.

Players will camp on Sunday.
