FORMER dual international, Noa Nadruku's son Neori has been named in the Australian Schoolboys team to tour Fiji and New Zealand next month.
The Australian Schoolboys touring party will travel to Fiji for two fixtures.
They will meet the Fijian President's XV at Prince Charles Park in Nadi on September 22 before facing the Fijian Schools at Churchill Park in Lautoka on September 25.
The squad will then travel to New Zealand where it will face the New Zealand Barbarians in Auckland on September 29.
They will then play Samoan Schools in Hamilton on October 2 before returning to Auckland to take on the New Zealand Schools on October 6 to conclude the tour.
The 17-year-old Neori of St Edmund's College is said to be a promising player with a bright future on the field.
The 110 kilogram forward caught Australian Schoolboys coach Adam Fahey's attention at the Australian Schoolboys' Rugby Championships.
"He's (Neori) built a bit different to his father (Noa), but you can see where he gets his ability from," Fahey told the Sydney Morning Herald after naming Neori in the initial squad.
"He is quite fast for a big bloke, he's got plenty of skill. He's got the ability to play at the next level."
Noa, who hails from Namatakula, earned five Test caps for the Flying Fijians before switching to rugby league.
He played for Canberra Raiders and North Queensland Cowboys and also played four Test matches for the Fiji Bati.
