Seta is an ultimate proffessional: Cotter

Flying Fijians Coach Vern Cotter says former All Blacks player and now Flying Fijians squad member Setareki Tamanivalu is an ultimate professional.

The former Crusader star becomes the first player to join the Flying Fijians following the change in World Rugby eligibility rules in November 2021

He is an ex-Crusaders and I have had time with the Crusaders,” Cotter said.

“He is an ultimate professional and will add value.”

Chief Executive John O’Connor said with injuries to some players is another reason they have roped in the experienced Tamanivalu.

“Semi Radradra is injured and is in a long term injury recovery process, and I think that is why it was important to conside Seta to add experience and depth in the midfield with the younger players included.

Also named in the centres berth for the Flying Fijians are Vilimoni Botitu, Waisea Nayacalevu and Fijian Drua pair Kalaveti Ravouvou and Apisalome Vota.

“His inclusion will help develop the younger players into world class players.”

Tamanivalu who currently plays for Toshiba Brave Lupus Tokyo competing in Japan's Top League has already arrived in the country.
