Tuesday, February 18, 2014

FOUR new players have been selected to attend the Vodafone Fiji 7s training camp in Rakiraki today.

The camp is to prepare the national 7s team for the Japan and Hong Kong leg of the HSBC Sevens World Series to be held next month.

A notable inclusion is 18-year-old St John College student Waisea Daroko who will be joined by Tabadamu's Taione Ravumaidamu, Westfield Barbarians' Akuila Vula and Eminoni Nasilasila of the Hideaway Hurricanes.

Some of the big names that have forced their way back into the squad are Jasa Veremalua. Pio Tuwai, Apisai Domolailai, Vucago Bainitabua and Marika Vunibaka.

All players that featured at the recent Wellington 7s have been named except for Viliame Mata who is recovering from a knee injury.

FRU yesterday confirmed there were some players not included in the extended squad because they were with their respective teams participating in sevens tournaments in Australia and also some players are injured.

A bus has been arranged to pick up Western Division players from Sigatoka Police Station at 8am, then Namaka Police Station in Nadi and then outside ANZ Bank which is opposite Shirley Park in Lautoka.

Players in the East will meet at Rugby House in Suva at 8am.

The players will break camp on Thursday as coach Ben Ryan is scheduled to travel to Yasawa for the Turtle Vodafone Nacula 7s this weekend.

7s squad: Donasio Ratubuli, Leo Naikasau, Samuela Saqiwa, Emosi Mulevoro, Henry Seniloli, Semi Kunatani, Lepani Botia, Benito Masilevu, Samisoni Viriviri, Osea Kolinisau, Jona Tuitoga, Vatemo Ravouvou, Waisea Daroko (U18 halfback from St John Cawaci in Ovalau), Akuila Vula (Westfield Barbarians), Apisai Domolailai, Marika Vunibaka, Jasa Veremalua, Pio Tuwai, Vucago Bainitabua, Eminioni Nasilasila (Hideaway Hurricanes), Taione Ravumaidamu (Tabadamu).
