Six Super League players have been named in Fiji’s initial 50-man squad as they ramp up their preparations for the World Cup.
Hull trio Kane Evans, Joe Lovodua and Chris Satae have all been included. Across the city, Hull KR forward Korbin Sims has been named. He could potentially play in his third World Cup this autumn.
Salford forward King Vuniyayawa has been named in the Bati squad. However, he is unlikely to play in the World Cup after being ruled out for the rest of the Super League season.
Super League’s sixth and final player in the Fiji squad is Castleford flier Jason Qareqare, who has enjoyed a sensational start to his professional career.
The Fiji squad is stacked with NRL talent with the likes of Kevin Naiqama, Maika Sivo, Mikaele Ravalawa, Api Koroisau and Viliame Kikau all included.
