FIJI Bati Ilisavani Jegesa has been named in the Fiji Warriors team for the Pacific Rugby Cup competition which starts at the end of this month.

Jegesa, who was part of the Vodafone Fiji Bati team to the 2013 Rugby League World Cup, was yesterday named in the 35-member national squad.

Fiji Warriors manager Joseph Browne said the players were selected following the trials on Thursday.

He said the team would be later trimmed to 30 players.

"The selection was based on the trials so those who performed well got the nod," Browne said.

"The travelling team will have 30 players only. The extra five in the squad is to accommodate if there is any injuries during the training leading up to the tournament."

Fiji Warriors will take on Samoa A, Tonga A, Japan A and Argentina Pampas XV along with the Super Rugby franchise development sides from Australia in the PRC competition.

Meanwhile Tailevu coach Lance Whippy has been confirmed as the Fiji Warriors coach and will be assisted by Naitasiri mentor Eroni Vereivalu.

The team will regroup on Monday at 9am at the Rugby House in Suva for a five-day camp.

All players are requested to please bring along the necessary training gear including their passport, birth certificate, sulu, Bible, neck tie and sandals.
