The Fiji Rugby Union gives up on hopes of Isa Nacewa playing for them for World Cup

The Fiji Rugby Union says it won't be pursuing the services of the Blues first-five Isa Nacewa for this year's World Cup in France.

Nacewa played for Fiji just for a few minutes against Scotland in the last pool match at the 2003 World Cup making him ineligible for New Zealand.

However, it's believed he's appealed to the International Rugby Board seeking to nullify that appearance so he can be eligible for the All Blacks.
