Nadolo set for return from retirement

Towering winger Nemani Nadolo could be in line for a sensational return to international rugby after announcing his retirement early last year.

Nadolo has been named in a Fiji Airways Flying Fijians 32-man squad for their forthcoming November Europe matches.

The Leicester Tiger winger had taken to social media late January 2019 to announce his retirement citing challenges on and off the field. He has been named alongside Josua ‘The Bus’ Tuisova and Semi ‘Trailer’ Radradra to man the wings.

The squad include nine local-based players namely Tevita Ikanivere, Peni Matawalu, Tuidraki Samusamuvodre, Serupepeli Vularika, Manueli Ratuniyarawa, Jone Koroiduadua, Samuela Tawake, Chris Minimbi and Simone Kuruvoli.

The squad is expected to march into camp on 25 October in preparation to face France on 15 November, Italy on 21 November and Scotland seven days later on 29 November at BT Murrayfield.

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