Blues sensation Hoskins Sotutu could be forced into deciding where his international loyalty lies, with the reports the barnstorming loose forward is a target of Fiji.

Sotutu, has been arguably the standout player for the top-of-the-table Blues, rising from relative unknown to guaranteed starter under coach Leon MacDonald.

Sotutu's form has seen All Blacks legend Buck Shelford throw his name into the ring to replace Kieran Read in the black jersey.

However, according to the New Zealand Herald, Sotutu is being lined up by Fiji coach Vern Cotter, should he miss out on an All Blacks call-up.

Sotutu is eligible for Fiji through his father Waisake Sotutu, who played 12 Tests for the Flying Fijians.

Sotutu has so far made the most tackles in Super Rugby Aotearoa with 27, and the most carries by a forward with 22.
