Fijian-born National Rugby League (NRL) stars are likely to be here to support the Fijian Prime Minister’s XIII clash against Australia’s PM XIII at the ANZ Stadium, Suva on October 11.

This was confirmed by Fiji National Rugby League acting chief executive officer Don Natabe.

The star players are Ken Irvine Medal recipient and Paramatta Eels star winger Maika Sivo, Penrith Panthers backrower Viliame Kikau, St George Illawarra winger Mikaele Ravalawa, Suliasi Vunivalu and Tui Kamikamica of  Melbourne Storm.

With the 2019 NRL season to be over tomorrow after the grand final between Canberra Raiders and Sydney Roosters, the players are now free to travel home for a break.

Vodafone Fijian Bati head coach Brandon Costin said they’re hoping that the players make it in time for the clash.

Meanwhile, the Fijian Bulikula coach Adrian Vowles arrived on Thursday night and started working with the women’s side yesterday.
