The Fiji Rugby Union is inviting under-20 players who wish to be part of the Vodafone Fijian U20 trials to send in their expression of interest to head coach Ifereimi Rawaqa.

FRU High-Performance Unit national teams manager Viliame Gadolo said they were opening the invitation to players locally and abroad who were born after 2002.

“They also must be fully vaccinated,” Gadolo said.

“These players will be considered for selection into the Vodafone Fijian U20 team which will prepare for the Oceania U20 tournament scheduled for July at the Sunshine Coast in Australia.

“Those selected will be contacted by Vodafone Fijian U20 head coach Ifereimi Rawaqa and his team.”

Gadolo said after they had received the expression of interest from the players, they would organise players in manageable groups for fitness testing, screening and trial teams for final selections.

He said overseas-based players who wished to attend the trials would be given a cut-off date where they would be expected to be in the country to be considered for selection.

Players are to send in their expression of interest before Saturday, January 29.

A fitness testing list would be released on the first week of February.
