The Auckland Blues first five Isa Nacewa says playing for Fiji in the Rugby World Cup is the last thing on his mind at the moment.

Reports from Fiji last week said that the Fiji Rugby Union had given up on chasing Nacewa to play for them later this year. Nacewa whose eligible to play for Fiji after a short appearance with them against Scotland in the last World Cup says there's only one thought on his mind at the mind

"You know oh I'm just focussing on Super 14 at the moment, I haven't made any decisions about it you know this team comes first so that's all I'm at."

And Nacewa has denied reports that he has appealed to the International Rugby Board seeking to nullify his short appearance for Fiji against Scotland.

I've never been to the IRB, there has been reports but I'm not sure where it came from, we haven't really put anything forward.
