We want to test Napolioni Bolaca if he can still manage to display his skills and he did show some of his skills in the Fiji Bitter Marist 7s while playing for the Fiji 1 team at the HFC Bank Stadium.
Fiji Airways National 7s coach Ben Gollings made this comment after being questioned regarding the involvement of Olympic gold medalist and former Fijian Drua squad member Napolioni Bolaca who has been struggling with a torn ACL injury in his right knee since around last year.
Gollings says if they could utilise Bolaca in a game for 3 to 4 minutes, it's a bonus to the National 7s team.
Gollings says in terms of his knee, Bolaca has got no more ligaments in his right knee, and they are not putting him at risk.
He says the reason Bolaca and older players are still playing is that they want to see who wants to put their hands up for the National squad.
