Rugby: Wallabies select ex-Fijian winger Suliasi Vunivalu for 40-man training squad

Former Fiji Bati winger Suliasi Vunivalu is among 14 uncapped players selected by Australia coach Dave Rennie for a 40-man squad to attend next month's Wallabies training camp on the Gold Coast.

Vunivalu has earned selection after impressing in the 15-man game since joining the Queensland Reds ahead of the current Super Rugby AU season from Melbourne Storm in the NRL. The winger, who played schoolboy rugby for Auckland's Saint Kentigern College, also represented Fiji in rugby league, scoring 50 points from eight tests.

The 25-year-old is one of 12 players from the Reds, who currently lead the Super Rugby AU standings, to be included in the squad.

"It's an indication of form," Rennie said of the selection.

"We've picked the guys where the spine of the Wallabies is there and it's an opportunity to learn a bit more about some other guys.

"It's a little message for those who aren't on the list to work hard and improve."

Len Ikitau is one of five uncapped players from the ACT Brumbies to have been picked, alongside former Junior Wallabies hooker Lachlan Lonergan, Andy Muirhead, Cadeyrn Neville and Darcy Swain.

At 32 years old, Neville is the oldest of the uncapped players and he is among 14 players from the Brumbies to have been chosen by Rennie, the largest contingent from any of the Super Rugby AU clubs.

Western Force's Sitaleki Timani returns to the squad after an eight-year absence, with the 34-year-old called up for the first time since the 2013 spring tour.

Rennie will use the three-day camp to prepare his team for the international season, which is due to kick off in the July Test window.
