Mesulame Kunavula is currently in final negotiations with European based club Edinburgh, but will not be leaving his team mates high and dry at the critical end of the current season.
Head Coach Gareth Baber says the team is intently focussed on the Hong Kong tournaments and that recent reports speculating around Kunavula’s future are both inaccurate and an unnecessary distraction for the job ahead.
“What the players are doing with their future beyond the current HSBC World Sevens Series should not be impacting the team’s focus right now.”
This insight from the Head Coach further dispels reports in Fiji media suggesting that Kunavula has terminated discussions with the UK based club where Flying Fijian Viliame Mata and recently announced Eroni Sau and Kalione Nasoko will be based next season.
“Mesu is currently in negotiations with Edinburgh, we know that, and we want the best for his future, but right now, we need to have our eyes fixed on Hong Kong.”
Kunavula was given special dispensation by Fiji Rugby and Coach Baber to make a visit to Edinburgh following the Vancouver tournament and resumed training with the squad as normal last week.
