The FBC reports he will be available for the upcoming June PacificTest Series.

Flying Fijians coach, John McKee says he has been closely tracking Osborne's form and performance levels.

McKee says he is happy that Osborne has made himself available for selection.

Osborne came close to All Blacks selection in 2014 and 2015, one stage being called in as injury cover without actually playing.
