This is an open invitation to all local players who would like to try out for the team.

CIRU asks all those interested to bring running shoes, rugby boots and a water bottle.

The national squad will play home and away Rugby World Cup qualifying matches against a yet to be named Asian team.

June 30 will see Cook Islands host the first leg, with the away match being played in Asia a week later.

Stan Wright was named as the coach last week, and is assisted by Nathan Mauger, Chris Whitaker and Kevin Iro.
