Visa problems hamper Flying Fijians' preparation

6:49 pm on 17 November 2010

Visa problems have delayed the arrival of some Fijian rugby players ahead of this weekends test against Wales in Cardiff.

The Flying Fijians lost the opening match of their European Tour 34-12 to France on Sunday morning and the majority of the squad has since made it to the Welsh capital for Saturday morning's match at the Millenium Stadium.

However coach Sam Domini says a few players have been held up in France with Visa problems.

He says he's confident the delayed players will still be available for selection this weekend and aside from a few bumps and bruises there's no injury concerns in the team.

Fiji were forced to make changes to their squad for an interational against Australia in June when two players were denied a Visa because of alleged military links.
