Frank Lomani has an exciting future for the Fiji Airway Flying Fijians and the Melbourne Rebels, says John McKee.

The Fiji Airways Flying Fijians head coach was impressed with Lomani’s form coming off the bench to score two tries against Georgia last week.

McKee is looking forward for Lomani to provide the spark in the final Pacific Nations Cup match against Tonga at Churchill Park, Lautoka tomorrow.

“Frank is an exciting up and coming player, who we’ve seen rapid development from him in the 12 months he’s been around camp,” McKee said.

“We’re looking forward to seeing how he can spark the Flying Fijians game”

McKee added Lomani will return to join the Rebels when the Super Rugby resumes next week. The Rebels face the Waratahs on Friday.

“Hopefully, the Rebels make the final so that will be a great experience for him in that environment,” McKee added.

“With Will Genia injured, there is a good chance Lomani will get some game time in Super Rugby which will be a value for him in his development at the highest level of the game.

“Lomani return to Fiji to join the Fiji Airways Fijian Drua in the Australian National Rugby Championship as a lead up to the Rugby World Cup.”
