Montoya in Fiji Bati Rugby League World Cup squad

Vodafone Warriors winger-centre Marcelo Montoya has been included in Fiji Bati's 33-man extended squad to prepare for the Rugby League World Cup.

The 26-year-old, who missed the Vodafone Warriors' last two matches of the season with a knee contusion, scored six tries in 18 appearances and averaged a career-high 130 metres a game in his second season with the club.

He has now played 36 games in all for the Vodafone Warriors to take his career total to 90.

Making his Test debut in 2016, Montoya has played nine times for Fiji including the 4-2 victory over the Kiwis at the 2017 Rugby League World Cup.

Former Vodafone Warriors Taane Milne and King Vuniyayawa are also included in the squad along with Waqa Blake, Reagan Campbell-Gillard, Tui Kamikamica, Viliame Kikau, Apisai Koroisau, Kevin Naiqama, Mikaele Ravalawa, Daniel and Jacob Saifiti, Korbin and Tariq Sims and Maika Sivo.
