Fiji Airways 7s coach Gareth Baber’s plans for selecting two different sides-one for the Hong Kong 7s and the other for the Commonwealth Games may not materialize.
This is due to France based players all but out of contention of being part of the Fiji Airways national 7s team for the Commonwealth Games.
Coach John McKee, who returned from France on Monday says the word in France is that clubs won’t release any players.
“For Commonwealth Games, I think you’ll find that there is some resistance to release players because there are no obligations on the clubs to release players. The clubs think of themselves and anything else will be a distant second.”
Meanwhile, the Fiji Rugby Unions should submit Fiji 7s final names to FASANOC by Monday.
