Naiqama wants to play alongside Koroisau

Fiji Bati Captain Kevin Naiqama is eager to play with Penrith Panthers hooker Apisai Koroisau at this year's Rugby League World Cup.
 
Naiqama told NRL.com that experienced players like Koroisau, Tariq Sims, Reagan Campbell-Gillard, and the Saifiti twins, Daniel and Jacob, could add to the squad from Origin would be invaluable. 
 
"If there is one fellow we are so proud of, it is Api."
 
"It is amazing to see the heights he has achieved," Naiqama said.
 
"I think he flies under the radar so it is really good to see him selected for State of Origin because he is playing so good and he is arguably one of the best hookers in our game."
 
"He is a proud Fijian, and as fellow countrymen and friends, we are just happy to see any Fijian achieve that sort of success."
 
"It is a credit to him because he has been the best hooker for some time now and he deserves the recognition."
 
"I am just so glad he gets to play Origin but hoping he plays for us in the World Cup."
 
"Anyone with Origin experience will help our squad and Api has done that; Tariq Sims as well. Reagan has represented our squad in the past and there are others."
 
"Anytime we can get those boys on board and play for Fiji it is only going to make our expectations of what we can achieve stronger."
