MONTPELLIER flyer Nemani Nadolo has joined the Fiji Airways Flying Fijians squad replacing the injured Japan-based Patrick Osborne for next week's clash against Italy.

The Flying Fijians will be playing Italy, Ireland and Canada during the World Rugby November Test window.

Head coach John McKee confirmed Nadolo's inclusion while responding to questions sent via email.

He said they had also named Akapusi Qera to be the captain for the northern tour.

"Qera will captain the Flying Fijians, notably he is a strong leader both on and off the field," McKee said.

McKee revealed that climbing up World Rugby rankings would not be their primary focus despite the fact being less than one point adrift from world number nine Argentina.

"We are focusing on our preparation and performance for Italy. Win games and you can go up the rankings depending on other results. This is interesting but not our primary focus," he said.
