Coates on standby for WCup

Fijiana Drua lock Jade Coates will be on standby for the 2022 World Cup in New Zealand.

Coach Senirusi Seruvakula after naming his 32-member squad in Suva tonight said Coates was not selected due to medical reasons.

“Coates will be on standby as she is expected to complete her rehabilitation in two weeks' time so she will be in New Zealand and in case of any injury then we will bring her into the team.”

Vani Arei also missed out due to medical reasons.

Seruvakula said they were blessed to play four test matches this year which sets the platform for the team.

“The big test for us was last week against Wahine Maori and also the two test matches we played earlier in the year against Wallaroos and Japan.”

“It was good to play these matches which gave the players the much-needed exposure and then an idea to us on their level of performance.”

“A lot of girls have stepped up as far as their performance is concerned. These girls have experience playing at the international level, they just need the confidence to play on the world stage.”

Fijiana squad- Joma Rubuti, Bitila Tawake, Mereoni Vonosere, Asinate Serevi, Sulita Waisega,, Karalaini Naisewa, Ema Adivitaloga, Sereima Leweniqila, Ana Maria Roqica, Merewalesi Rokouono, Vitalina Naikore, Akanisi Sokoiwasa, Raijieli Laqeretabua, Ilisapeci Delaiwau, Alowesi Nakoci, Jiowana Sauto, Iris Verebalavu, Bulou Vasuturaga, Merevesi Ofakimalino, Akosita Ravato, Rusila Nagasau, Timaima Ravisa, Roela Radiniyavuni, Siteri Rasolea, Vika Matarugu, Raijieli Daveua, Kolora Lomani, Melaia Matanatabu, Ana Maria Naimasi, Talei Wilson, Sesenieli Donu, Lavena Cavuru.
