Josh confirmed in Fiji squad for the World Cup as a utility back I suppose as he recently played at 10 for them. Unsurprisingly Nikki Goneva selected although surprisingly for Falcons supporters Cavubati also selected as his form at KP never remotely suggested that .

I wouldn't have signed Cabuvati. He was just a filler and offered little when he played. One of those players one wondered why we signed him since he was either injured or didn't offer much when he played.

Along with Finegan one of the worst signings in that engine room imo. Give me Williamson any day, a good player who never really fulfilled his potential due to constantly being injured! I suppose that says a lot in how he played the game. Hard and uncompromising! Very few about now. But a common denominator with the likes of Balding, Grewcock, Henry Tuilagi etc. They just played hard and as a result often injured.
But rugby still needs such players who unfortunately appear to be a dying breed. Billy Vunipola seems to be that type, but again you just wonder when another injury will strike with him. Hopefully he stays healthy as he's key to England doing well in the world cup.

Great news for Josh
Along with Mark Wilson, Cooper Vuna, Tane Takalua & Logo Mulipola the falcons will be well represented at the World Cup
Shame Gary Graham didnít make the cut at Scotland
