Naqelevuki asks for his ‘B Sample’

The Fiji Rugby Union (FRU) confirmed that Sevens star Sireli Naqelevuki has requested for his B Sample to be analysed, following a positive test for a banned substance at the International Rugby Board (IRB) Sevens tournament in George, South Africa, in December.

FRU chairman Keni Dakuidreketi explained that the International Rugby Board (IRB) was continuing with the investigations.

“We can’t make any further comment until the B Sample results are known,” Dakuidreketi told

“But the IRB have provisionally suspended Naqelevuki from all levels of rugby pending the completion of this case.”

Naqelevuki has hired Suva lawyer Alofa Seruvatu to act on his behalf, and she is liaising with the IRB and FRU chief executive officer Timoci Tavanavanua on this matter.

Naqelevuki recently signed to play for the Stormers in South Africa in the upcoming Super 14 competition.

However, the Stormers have indicated that they will cancel the contract.
