Former Queensland Reds winger Chris Kuridrani and Greater Syd­ney Rams No.8 Albert Tuisue are likely to play for the Fiji Airways Fijian Warriors side in the upcoming Pacific Rugby Challenge.

This was confirmed last night by War­riors head coach Senirusi Seruvakula after they arrived at Nadi International Airport.

“Under the new PRC format it allows five overage players to play while the rest of the squad are made-up of Under-23 reps,” he said.

“This is a good platform for Kuridrani and Tuisue who could go on to play for the Fiji Airways Drua in the Australia National Rugby Championship and then to the Fiji Airways Flying Fijians.”

Seruvakula said the U23 players in the Warriors side are halfback Frank Lom­ani, Inia Tawalo, Eroni Mawi, Tuwere Vugakoto and elusive first five eight Jone Manu.

“The five overage players are going to confirmed by Flying Fijians head coach John McKee.”

Seruvakula said they had a good learn­ing experience playing in the Brisbane Global Tens Rugby where the competi­tion against Super Rugby teams were of high intensity.

“I really enjoyed coaching the local boys who showed they have the talent and put their bodies on the line,” he added.
