Wade pulls out

AUSTRALIA-BASED Mitchel Wade has pulled out of the Fiji Warriors rugby side.

And he has been released from camp to sort out his citizenship papers while fly-half Waisea Luveniyali also had an early break to recover from dengue fever and dehydration, according to the team management.

Wade, who resided in Fiji for about 10 years before returning to Australia in 2000, will have to sort out his citizenship papers to determine his fate in the team for the upcoming Pacific Rugby Cup while Luveniyali is expected to rejoin the side next week.

"We have only Waisea (Luveniyali) on our concern list," team manager Joe Browne said.

"He suffered from dengue and dehydration and spent last night (Tuesday night) at the military hospital before being told to recover at home.

"He should join the team again at camp by next week."

Brown said Wade's replacement would be announced soon.

"We will have to wait for our head coach before naming the player to replace Mitchel (Wade). He pulled out of the team because he has to sort out his citizenship papers first.

"If everything goes on time then he can join the team again but that depends on how soon his papers will be processed."

The side had two training sessions yesterday.

The Fiji Warriors side plays the Queensland Reds A in its opening game in Brisbane on March 2.
