The lure of playing at this year’s rugby world cup for the Fiji Airways Flying Fijians have made an impact on Mesulame Dolokoto and Frank Lomani.
According to the Fiji Rugby Union , Dolokoto and Lomani have both turned down overseas offers to remain in Fiji and focus on their rugby and the philosophy behind the decision is something to be admired of the two young prospects.
Dolokoto who made his debut in last year’s June Test Series has made the most of his opportunities for both the Fiji Airways Drua and Flying Fijians.
The young hooker also secured game time in all three tests during the European tour.
Despite receiving offers from overseas, he has remained at home for 2019, with bigger picture in focus.
Flying Fijian half-back Frank Lomani has followed suit with his Suva based team mate, also choosing to deny off shore deals to remain in Fiji.
Lomani said he didn’t feel the need to be overseas as we have all the resources we need here in Fiji to be a world class team.
Meanwhile, Dolokoto and Lomani have reunited with fellow Swire Shipping Warriors and Drua team mates to form a pre-season squad in Suva.
