Two overseas-based players for U20

FRANCE-based Adrea Cocagi and New Zealand schoolboy Dion Fraser have confirmed their spots in the 42-member Fiji under-20 squad preparing for the Junior World Championship in New Zealand next June.

Cocagi, who played professional rugby for Italy's top division club Laquila Rugby before joining French Top 14 club Stade Francais early last year, and Fraser, a fly-half, will join the team next month.

With the national U20 side to be reduced to 35 players before June, the team management is assessing the performance of players at training.

Earlier this week, the Salimoni Ravouvou-coached side marched into camp at the Queen Elizabeth Barracks.

Team manager Paula Biu said they wanted to know more about the players during the first week of camp.

"We're assessing the players now and making sure they get to know the system," Biu said.

"It's only our first week of camp and we will want the players to get to know us while we'll want to know more about them on and off the field.

"The 42 squad will be reduced to 35 before the JWC."

He said the two-overseas based players would boost their campaign.

"We have two overseas players (Cocagi and Fraser) who have made themselves available for Fiji. They will join the team next month."

The team broke camp on Friday.
