Ex-NRL stars on talent search

FORMER Australian Kangaroos rugby league stars Andrew Johns and Bradley Fittler will be visiting Fiji next month to search for the next Lote Tuqiri and Petero Civoniceva talent.

The duo believes that there are other talented players in Fiji who could follow the footsteps of Civoniceva and dual international Tuqiri.

"We will hold specialised clinics, we've got schools to visit, footballs and jerseys to give out all, in the hope we can fast-track the next Petero or Lote Tuqiri," Fittler told the Herald Sun.

Fiji has produced some of the game's super stars in Civoniceva, Jarryd Hayne, Tuqiri, Akuila Uate and Noa Nadruku who graced the NRL competition.

Fiji National Rugby League official Tomi Finau said they were not aware of the visit.

"We are willing to provide any form of assistance to them when they come," Finau said.
