Nadolo and Radradra named in star-studded Fiji Autumn Nations Cup Squad

Fiji Rugby’s 15s Head Coach Vern Cotter has named a powerful Fiji Autumn Nations Cup squad to prepare for the upcoming competition.

The 32 member squad will march into camp on 25 October in preparation to face France on 15 November, Italy on 21 November and Scotland 7 days later on 29 November at BT Murrayfield.

Flying Fijians will also play Portugal on 6 November as a warm up to the Autumn Nations Cup.

Competition will be fierce across all positions, with many of the Europe based players coming off the back of stellar seasons including Bristol Bears try scoring machine Semi Radradra, London Irish forward Albert Tuisue and Toulon powerhouse Josua Tuisova.

Blockbusting winger Nemani Nadolo also makes his return to international duties after announcing an early retirement last year.
