The arrival of the Europe-based Flying Fijians squad members next week will surely be a sigh of relief for head coach Vern Cotter who says selection for the Pacific Nations Cup will surely be interesting as everyone will be fighting for a spot.

“They are coming in little by little,” said Cotter.

“The English players will not be here till later. Filimoni Botitu will play in the Top 14 final this weekend for Castre.

“We have a couple of other guys coming back in. Ben Volavola will be in soon as he just got married. Temo Mayanavanua just celebrated the arrival of his first child with his wife.

“So by Monday next week we would have most of our players together.”
