FIJI under-18 rugby coach Elemaca Ravulo has named his final squad to tour New Zealand later this month.

After a warm-up game against the Nadroga U20 rugby side over the weekend, Ravulo selected his final 25 travelling players and five non-travelling reserves.

Fiji plays New Zealand, Australia and the New Zealand Barbarians in the Tri-Nations Test Series during the tour.

He said he was pleased with the performance of players. The Baby Stallions who are the reigning Skipper Cup U20 champions edged the national U18 side 30-25 at Lawaqa Park last Saturday.

"It was a really good game for us," he said.

"We enjoyed the game a lot and it really helped in the selection of the final team for the tour."

The four Fiji U18 7s players in Epineri Uluiviti, Filipe Qoro, Waisea Daroko and Josefa Rauga who won bronze at the Youth Olympic Games have also forced their way into the squad.

Ravulo said the team would be in camp at Laucala Bay Secondary School until they depart. He also requested the non-travelling reserves to attend the camp.

25-member squad:

Josaia Raboiliku, Samuela Tawake, Eroni Cama, Onisimo Sina, Sitiveni Kubu, Jone Seavou, Epineri Uluiviti, Aisea Volavola, Kitione Kamikamica, Onisimo Sukani, Josefa Rauga, Pio Vukikomoala, Seveci Naisilisili, Alipate Orisi, Waisea Daroko, Sela Toga, Jimione Raiwalui, Filipe Qoro, Manasa Mataele, Simon Lilicama, Waisea Niumataiwalu, Etuate Sawailau, Jone Tuva, Onisimo Dakainikoro, Marika Kubu.

Non-travelling reserves:

Jo Lewakalu, Vuniani Mokalou, Epeli Matiyavi, Aminiasi Rokosuka, Epeli Sicinilawa.
