Semi Kunatani will join the Vodafone Fijian 7s squad next Monday. Vodafone Fijian 7s head coach Ben Ryan also confirmed Josua Tuisova has yet to join the extended squad.

“Semi is flying from France, he played for Toulouse in the weekend and will come in on Monday,” he said.

“Josh is playing this week for Toulon if they win he will stay on for the final, when he comes I will certainly give him a one week off, he has played a lot of rugby and we will  see him in two to three weeks.”

“He’s realised there is a mammoth task ahead of him as I have told him, that he has slim chance really in selection,” Ryan said.

“He’s got the I’m going to prove them wrong attitude and I like that. “All he can do is put his head down and work as hard as he can, session to session and get fitter and I’m really pleased with his attitude and the way he has integrated with the boys, it’s been great.”

 

Equal opportunity

Ryan believes all players got equal opportunities to make it in the final 12.

“Every person got equal opportunity for selection. If Sevuloni Mocenacagi trains in every session on a world class level then he’s on form, it’s the same if Rawaca doesn’t step up then he will be out of the team. They know that.

“They are not going to get into the Olympic team because of reputation, you pick on what you see, I need to get the combinations right. For now the boys will need to get fit and professional,” Ryan said.

Meanwhile, Pio Tuwai missed out in yesterday’s training session to attend a medical scan while Isake Katonibau is sick.

Squad; Alivereti Veitokani, Amenoni Nasilasila, Apisai Domolailai, Emosi Mulevoro, Isake Katonibau, Jarryd Haynes, Jasa Veremalua, Josua Tuisova, Josua Vici, Kitione Dawai, Leone Nakarawa, Masivesi Dakuwaqa, Nemani Nagusa, Osea Kolinisau, Pio Tuwai, Samisoni Viriviri, Savenaca Rawaca, Semi Kunatani, Seremaia Tuwai, Sevuloni Mocenacagi, Vatemo Ravouvou, Viliame Mata, Waisea Nayacalevu
