The Queensland Reds are confident that Melbourne Storm winger Suliasi Vunivalu will join the Reds as planned.
24 year old Suliasi Vunivalu in weeks has been keen in joining the Reds.
Fiji National Rugby League Head Coach Brandon Costin says that this will be a big loss for Rugby League but it is also an opportunity for emerging talents.
The winger have played for the Fiji Bati in the mid season and post season tests.
Costin adds that FNRL mission is to enrich the lives of young Fijians through rugby league.
Suliasi Vunivalu will battle fellow Fijian Filipo Daugunu and others within in the squad for those wing spots next year.
Costin is confident that Vunivalu will succeed in his rugby career.
Vunivalu will act as a more than suitable replacement for outgoing Reds wing Henry Speight, who has signed a three-year deal with a French Club.
