WATCH Waisake Rasalala turn heads at the Coral Coast Sevens.
The Sila Central High School sprinter sparkled at the Great Eight Tournament and is a key player in the Dritabua side.
He plays on the wing but is more a playmaker. Unlike most wingers who only rely on pace, Rasalala has variations to his game.
He has vision and if he won't burn the opposition with speed, he can break the last line of defence with either a chip over the top or a grubber kick. He may be an athlete but Rasalala will surely go a long way on the rugby pitch.
Dritabua, coached by Jope Qalia, is a laced with youth.
"The oldest player is 24 years old," Qalia said yesterday.
The team from Wainibuka, Tailevu, trains daily at Ram Lakhan Park, Samabula.
"We train from 9 in the morning to 12 midday daily." Qalia said.
"Players who are working join me in the afternoon and I go through the phases with them.
"Tomorrow morning (today) we will be at the HPU gym."
Qalia's team was one of the most impressive both on and off the field at the Great Eight meet.
They are a very disciplined unit and a lot of the credit goes to Qalia for the way he is grooming this bunch of players.
"Indiscipline can prove costly in sevens. So it is important to avoid the yellow card."
Qalia's team was handed a tough draw. They are with the Lote Rasiga-coached Red Rock, the Kini Radaveta skippered Hydro and Nabua in Pool E.
