THE Vodafone Fiji Bati is now complete with No.9 Apisai Koroisau joining camp yesterday.

Koroisau, who got married this week, immediately lifted the standard of training for the team seven days away from their first match against USA in Townsville.

"He certainly lifted the standard of training," coach Mick Potter said.

"He is quality number 9 and I am looking forward to seeing him in the Rugby League World Cup.

"He's being great for us ... today and in the past. He is a mature player and he'll certainly add some value."

Koroisau played for the blue team during the first half of the side's training session before switching to the green team, his impact clearly visible.

Kelepi Komaisavou, who has been with the side during Koroisau's absence will be leaving the team today.

"Young Gabby has done great job," Potter said of his performance. "He has a bright future ahead of him."

The team will leave for Brisbane tonight where Potter will hold more training sessions for three days.

Next Thursday, the side will travel to Townsville where they will be for two weeks playing their first two pool matches.

The side's third pool match will be Canberra against Italy. Today, the team will have a light training session polishing up on skills.
