He says Bukayaro in the long term is a good replacement for Jerry Tuwai, hence, that is the reason they have roped him plus he has proven himself to be in the traveling squad to Spain.

As for Soro, Fuli says he is one of the hardworking forwards in Fiji.

Soro played for Tabadamu 7s, Tailevu and Naitasiri in the Skipper Cup.

Fuli adds Soro is very good in aerial balls, technical work in the contact and breakdown area.

Dual Olympic gold medalist Tuwai is back missing the first leg of the World Rugby Sevens Series in Dubai.

Daniele Yaya, Iowane Raturaciri, Panapasa Qeruqeru and Terio Tamani who featured in Dubai have failed to make the cut.
