FORMER Fiji sevens reps Manasa Naiyagi and Maleli Bula have secured contracts in New Zealand.

This has been confirmed to Times Sport by Lomaiviti Babarians coach Sekaia Ragata.

Naiyagi who played for Lomaiviti in the past three years, made his debut for the Fiji sevens team last season while Bula who had a stint in New Zealand last season has secured another contract with Awatere Rugby Club in Nelson Bay.

Bula also broke into the HSBC Sevens World Series last season.

Ragata said Naiyagi had been instrumental for Lomaiviti in the past.

"Manasa played for us for three years and also broke into the national sevens squad," he said.

"This is a big break for him and I hope he will be exposed to a higher level of competition.

"He is a strong player and I hope he will gain more knowledge of rugby while playing in Nelson Bay.

"It's a one year-contract for both players."

Naiyagi was scheduled to depart for New Zealand yesterday.

Ragata hopes to send more players to be exposed at overseas level in the future.

Naiyagi will miss Lomaiviti's campaign in the upcoming Fiji Bitter Marist 7s tournament at the ANZ Stadium in Suva next month.
