THREE players have been called in as replacements to make up the final 30-member Fiji Warriors squad for the Pacific Rugby Cup competition.

Nadroga's Jiuta Lutumailagi and Aporosa Tuqiri joined the backline while Suva's Apisai Vatubuli walked his way into the forwards to complete the Lance Whippy-coached side.

Former Flying Fijian Rupeni Rasiga leads the charge in the forwards alongside former national 7s strongmen Peni Ravai, Nemani Nagusa and Ulaiasi Lawavou.

Flying Fijian fly-half Waisea Luveniyali will spearhead the backline which also has some top players in Jiuta Lutumailagi, Sitiveni Kunaga and Suva's Vilitati Sokoveta.

Fiji Warriors manager Joseph Browne said the team had the best available players for the competition.

Coach Whippy is yet to decide on who will captain the team.
