Centre Eroni Vasiteri has been cleared and will be available for the Fiji Airways Flying Fijians in the remaining matches against Uruguay and France.

But Semi Radradra will learn of his fate today after he was cited for a high challenge in the first half of Bordeaux’s 40-0 Top 14 thrashing at the hands of Toulouse early this month.

Fiji Airways Flying Fijians head coach John McKee confirmed Va­siteri was found not guilty after he was cited by independent Citing Commissioner Andy Blyth (Eng­land) for an alleged act of foul play contrary to Law 9.13 (dangerous tackle) during the test match be­tween Scotland and Fiji at Murray­field on November 11.

“Vasiteri has been cleared but we are awaiting the ruling on Radradra,”McKee said.

Radradra scored in the 17-54 drub­bing by Scotland on Sunday.

McKee confirmed Josua Tuisova has teamed up and trained with the team yesterday.

He said restricted preparations and game time will continue to be a disadvantage to Fiji during the November internationals.

The second test against Uruguay at Hartpury on Sunday will be a perfect opportunity for the Fijians to get it right.

The Fijians will definitely need game time before they face France next week.

There is more to gain from the match as both teams are in the same pool at the 2019 Rugby World Cup.
