Fiji Airways Fijian 7s head coach Gareth Baber said he’s aware that captain, Ka­lione Nasoko is going to take up an offer with a top club in Europe.

Speaking from Las Vegas, Baber said he’s fully aware of Nasoko’s next venture regarding his rugby career and wishes him the best.

“There has been interest in Kalione Nasoko to Europe but we’ve yet to confirm where exactly he’s going,” Baber said.

It is understood the Yasawa native has been linked to the Glasgow Warriors where former Fiji Airways Flying Fijians halfback Nikola Matawalu is currently playing for while Leone Nakarawa had a stint with the club before join­ing Racing 92 in France.

“I’m fully aware of that and so are the players in the team,” Baber said.

“The FRU (Fiji Rugby Union) has brought in re­placements so with these newcomers we will de­velop and allow them to progress and undertake all the expected pressure and scrutiny.

“However, most of these players come straight from the village and that’s the next step in their career to get overseas-based contracts. Also, as a coach we are proud of the fact that we are able to give them that exposure in pursuing their dreams.”

Nasoko is to join Warriors in November for a month’s trial before finalising his contract.
