Fiji born Storm sensation Suliasi Vunivalu has been dubbed the Fijian Flyer since he burst onto the scene 12 months ago, and after some conjecture surrounding eligibility it appears as though he is on track to represent the Bati when they take on Tonga as part of the Pacific Test triple‑header on 6th May.

The explosive winger has developed into one of the best finishers in the game since making his debut last season and looks set to earn his Fiji debut in the May Test despite some reported interest from the Kiwis.

Fiji coach Mick Potter told NRL.com that there was a whisper that New Zealand had made some enquiries but as far as he knows, Vunivalu did not pledge his allegiance or anything like that, but is looking forward to getting a run for Fiji.

Vunivalu is not the only NRL star on Potter's radar, with the Bati coach keeping an eye on Gold Coast Titans fullback Jarryd Hayne who has been named on an extended bench this week after missing more than a month of footy with an ankle injury. 

The Storm will take on the Warriors at 8pm Tuesday while the Raiders will face the Eagles at 7pm Friday.
