Simon Raiwalui trims Flying Fijians squad

Head Coach Simon Raiwalui has finalized his 39-member extended squad which marches into camp in Taveuni on Saturday.

Out of the 45 players named in the wider group a fortnight ago, Raiwalui has reduced the squad to 39 after all club commitments were finished.

Prop Jone Koroiduadua, Setareki Tuicuvu, Adrea Cocagi and Mesulame Dolokoto have been dropped while Haereiti Hetet and Joseva Tamani are still recovering from injury, and will be managed from outside the group by the medical staff.

Raiwalui says there were a few injury concerns and this has been reflected in the selection of the squad.

The final 33-member World Cup squad will be announced on August 8th in a special ceremony in Nadi.
