Nemani Nadolo joins the Fiji Airways Flying Fijians camp in Toulouse, France, preparing for the November internationals against Italy, Ireland and Canada.

Fiji Airways Flying Fijians head coach John McKee confirmed yesterday that Nadolo has replaced injured, Patrick Osborne

“I’ve called in Nadolo to replace Osborne,” McKee said.

“The only other change is Sikeli Nabou replacing Tevita Cavubati otherwise all the squad members are in.”

The team took part in their first training session on Monday.

“The first training session on Monday focused on clarity of our game plan around attack and defence system,” McKee said.

“As most of the European players had matches over the weekend, it was a light session. The players also undertook medical and strength and conditioning screenings as well as gym sessions.

“Trainings will step up every day with gym and units in the morning and a team session in the afternoon.

“Most players were in camp by Sunday night while Newcastle Falcons utility backline player Vereniki Goneva and Clermont’s flanker Peceli Yato joined the squad on Monday.”

McKee has warned the players on the importance of bringing their ‘A’ game starting during their training session.

“There has been a good focus from the players in getting back into our game style and systems. I have emphasised to the players the importance of the individual focus and effort that must go into our preparation (trainings, extra skills sessions, game plan role knowledge) every day for the Flying Fijians to be able to reach the levels of performance in Test Matches required for a successful campaign.

“We have a challenging itinerary as Italy will be a tough opposition at home and Ireland beat both world No. 1 and No. 2 ranked teams (New Zealand & England) across 2016-17.

Fiji play Italy in Nov 11 in Catania, Sicily, Ireland on November 18 in Dublin, Canada on November 25 in Montpellier, France.
