Fiji wing Nemani Nadolo will not form part of their squad for the World Cup after announcing his retirement from international rugby on Thursday.
The 31-year-old, who has been playing for Montpellier in France, posted on social media that his international journey has come to an end, effectively ruling himself out of the global showpiece in Japan later this year.
Nadolo ends his international career having earned 30 Test caps since his debut in 2010, scoring 224 points, including 19 tries and 21 penalties.
‘I thought I’d be the first to let you all know that I’ve called it a day playing for my beloved country Fiji,’ Nadolo posted. ‘First and foremost I want to thank the almighty for without him I believe I would never have gotten this far.
‘The moment I debuted as a “caretaker” of the jersey back in 2010 I would have never thought I’d have played for this long and represented the tiny island of Fiji.
‘I want to thank all the coaches, trainers, physios and people I have come in contact with during my time as a “caretaker” of the jersey.
‘To all the past and present players whom I’ve had the honour of playing alongside with I want to say big VINAKA. Most of all to the people of Fiji both in Fiji and abroad.’
