Injury concern for Nadolo

Date published: July 11 2015

Fiji are sweating over the fitness of star player Nemani Nadolo after the powerful wing suffered an injury against the Maori All Blacks in Suva.

The goal-kicking Crusader, who can also play in the centres, was forced to leave the field on Saturday after scoring a try in the left corner on half-time.

Fiji lost the match 27-26 at ANZ National Stadium, letting slip a 26-10 lead at the break as the loss of Nadolo to a rib problem clearly hurt their attacking options.

He tweeted after the game: "Disappointing bout the game going down to a tough maori side.. But more disappointing bout this injury. Fingers cross it's not bad."
