ANOTHER member of the Tuisese family is aiming to don the national jumper.
Eight-year-old Waisea Tuisese has just begun his rugby career by being named in the Suva under-9 Kaji rugby team.
Waisea is looking forward to carrying on the legacy started by his great-grand father Waisea and namesake back in 1947.
He went on to earn four Test caps for Fiji and after him came his son, the great Ilaitia Tuisese, who is no stranger to rugby in Fiji.
The lock represented Fiji for almost a decade from 1969 to 1977 and he captained the team in nine matches.
His son, Ilaitia Tuisese Jr, also a lock, has two caps to his name.
Now Waisea, son of Ilaitia Jr, looks to follow in the footsteps of his forefathers.
Waisea has rugby in his blood not only from his father's side but from maternal side.
His mum is a granddaughter of none other than the original Flying Fijian Josefa Levula.
Young Waisea said he took up rugby seriously this year and represented his school, Assemblies of God Primary School in the Suva Kaji Rugby competition.
"I want to play for Fiji too," he told Times Sport yesterday.
Waisea, the eldest of three siblings, plays at centre and Ilaitia Jr said he was doing everything to help him build his sporting career.
"Ever since he was born, all he has heard about and seen was rugby so it was no surprise to us when he told us he will play for his school," he said.
"So everyday I talk to him about rugby, give him tips on how to play and how to tackle and I am the assistant coach for Naitasiri so he goes with me to every training session and game to watch the big guys play so he can learn.
"Now that he has been named in the Suva Kaji rugby side, I know he has taken his first steps of his careers and me and my family will do everything to help him get to the top," Ilaitia said.
If Waisea ends up in the white jersey, he will be the fourth generation from his family to do so.
