    Nemani Nadolo and Josua Tuisova wonít play against the Wallabies

    FIJIíS two biggest stars, Nemani Nadolo and Josua Tuisova, have been ruled out of the Test against the Wallabies in a further blow to a match that is struggling to attract ticket-buyers.

    Nadolo, well-known to Australian fans after stints in the Shute Shield and Waratahs academy and lining up for the Crusaders in the 2014 final against NSW, has ongoing concussion issues and will be rested from the match.

    Tuisova, Fijiís other powerhouse winger who helped his nation win the Olympic gold medal in rugby sevens last year, will play alongside former Wallabies Matt Giteau, Drew Mitchell and James OíConnor for Toulon in the Top 14 final next weekend and wonít arrive in camp in time to be considered for their first Test.

    Australiaís Super Rugby teams have struggled this season with the Rebels in particular having a diabolical year, while SANZAARís protracted moves to cut the competition to 15 teams next year has seen fans turn off.

    Ticket sales have been slow for the June 10 afternoon Test in Melbourne, and wonít be helped by the 10th ranked nation in the world losing their two most damaging game-breakers.

    What's the bet the ticket sales for the Perth Test will also be slow when they go on sale in June?

    I certainly won't be rushing out to buy tickets if either the situation with Super Rugby is unresolved or the worst case scenario and the Force are canned. In fact of the latter happens I may burn my Wallabies jersey in front of NiB!

    I'm the sure the fact the largest Fijian population in the country is in Sydney and they're playing the game in Melbourne doesn't help.
