Vodafone Fiji sevens coach Ben Ryan says he will not tolerate any indiscipline within his squad.
This as he dropped Leo Naikasau and Joeli Lutumailagi from his 30-member training squad named this afternoon.
The two are the notable exclusions from the squad, which includes a number of former reps.
Ryan says he has picked players who have shown their commitment to don the national jumper.
“Joeli (Lutumailagi) and Leo (Naikasau) unfortunately didn’t come down to the fitness testing. We made every effort to communicate with them and Joeli rang me this morning to be fair to him but neither really had an excuse. But with the competition there is and they know I am strict and keep to my word on things and we can’t bring them into camp next week and it’s hard for them to get in and they will have to work very hard to try and oust these others guys.”
The squad marches into camp next Monday.
Full squad:Apisai Naqaliva, Apilemeki Mocekula, Apisai Domolailai, Apisalome Waqatabu, Eminoni Nasilasila, Emori Waqa, Emosi Mulevoro, Eremaasi Radrodro, Etuate Qio, Ilai Tinai, Isake Katonibau, Isikeli Vuruna, Jasa Veremalua, Jerry Tuwai, Jone Qorovarua, Manueli Laqai, Nasoni Roko, Niko Verekauta, Osea Kolinisau, Pio Tuwai, Sanivalati Ramuwai, Samuela Saqiwa, Savenaca Rawaca, Semi Kunatani, Sevuloni Mocenacagi, Sitiveni Waqa, Sunia Vosikata, Vatemo Ravouvou, Viliame Mata, Waisea Nacuqu.
