THE Fiji Rugby Union is working with the International Rugby Union to ensure they have the best players available for the Northern tour in November.
Last year, some clubs in Europe didn't release the Fijian players who were eyed by coach Inoke Male.
The Flying Fijians managed to win only one match on that tour.
FRU chief executive officer Manasa Baravilala said the international body had stepped in to help tier two nations counter the problem this year.
"What IRB has suggested to us including Tonga and Samoa is to send representatives to Europe to work with IRB representatives and visit these clubs in France and the UK and talk to the players and also the management so this problem does not occur during this year's Test window," Baravilala said.
Fiji will play Portugal, Italy and the British Barbarians on the 2013 tour.
"The British Barbarians match falls outside of the Test window so discussions are underway with the players and the clubs to ensure that the players are released because that game is a very historic game for us as you know 1970 was the last time we played the Barbarians in London and we won that game."
Baravilala said they were still trying to secure a sponsor for the tour.
"We are still working on that and also looking forward to the Northern tour as you know we had not had any sponsor for the Northern tour for several years but that has not deterred us, we are working very hard and hopefully secure sponsorship."
