Sport: Nadolo keen to be involved in PNC, World Cup campaign

2:48 pm on 24 February 2014

Flying Fijians winger Nemani Nadolo says he has every intention of adding to his 11 test caps in this season's Pacific Nations Cup.

The 26 year old linked up with his new Crusaders teammates last week in Christchurch and is hopeful of making his Super Rugby debut sometime next month.

Fiji host the Cook Islands in a Rugby World Cup playoff match in Suva at the end of June, following Nations Cup ties against Samoa and Tonga.

Pacific Island internationals involved in Super Rugby haven't always made themselves available for mid-year internationals but Nadolo says he's keen to be involved if possible.

"Before I came I spoke to the Crusaders and told them my desire to keep playing for Fiji and obviously with the PNC and the World Cup qualifiers but we're just going to have to worry about that when we come to that bridge. I want to play as many tests as I can but I've got to weigh up my options obviously with the Crusaders and see where I am at with my body - I'm coming back from injury - but it would be good to get back there and have a crack at the PNC and it'd be good to see the boys again".
