DUMMY half Kelevi Komaisavou could be getting game time in the Vodafone Fiji Bati team in the Tri-Nations against Papua New Guinea at the ANZ Stadium in Suva on Saturday.

Fiji Bati team selectors called in Komaisavou into the squad after Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles dummy half Apisai Koroisau was excused from the match because of family commitments.

Coach Mick Potter said Papua New Guinea and Australia would bring a lot of physicality into the Tri-Nations.

"Gabby probably could come off the bench against PNG and he could also play a game against Australia as well," he said.

"The local players might start against Papua New Guinea and they will get at least 20 minutes or a little bit long, but I have not picked the team yet and once I pick the players then I will see the balance of the team," he said.

"Apisai is a valuable asset to us and he is number one to us as he is expected to join the team next week."

The other local players in the squad includes Etuate Bola and Pio Seci of Nabua Broncos, Army Bears prop Joseva Senivonokula and Nadi Aviators lock and Fiji Residents captain Viliame Rakuli.

"It is going to be a fantastic game which we are going to have where the Australia and Papua New Guinea and I think it is going to good for rugby league and for our team," he added.

"Australia is a world-class team and the people may not see the players in the Australian team ever again and it might be another 30 years when the tournament might come back again."
