FORMER national under-20 rep Peter Lee is confident of becoming the next Fijian native to play for Australia in the International Rugby Board Sevens World Series.

The Yawe lad from Kadavu said playing for Australia was his dream and he would do his best to make his dream come true this year.

Lee was instrumental for the Australian Thunderbolts helping his team to win all their pool games in the Coral Coast 7s held at Lawaqa Park.

He said he was happy to rub shoulders with his fellow countrymen and has learnt a lot of good lessons from this tournament.

"This is the first time for me to play in this kind of competition and it's really good hit out," said Lee.

"All games here have been tough and I really enjoyed my games.

"My aim is to represent Australia in the IRB 7s series and I will have to prove my worth against my fellow teammates for a spot in the final team.

Lee said learning the 7s game from some of the best in the business would boost his 7s career.

Sevens stars present at this year's Coral Coast 7s included former All Blacks rep Jonah Lomu, former England 7s skipper Ben Gollings, former Fiji 7s skipper and coach Waisale Serevi and All Blacks 7s ace Tomasi Cama
