ANASA Rauqe is ready to paint his face blue and fly the Fiji flag at the Westpac Stadium in Wellington, New Zealand, next weekend.

The 32-year-old Naiserelagi, Ra, was lost for words when named the winner of the Digicel Fiji 'Trip to Wellington 7s' promotion.

Rauqe said he sent an SMS only once and was surprised to win two return air tickets to Wellington, two-day tickets for two to the games and accommodation for two in Wellington.

"It's a blessing for me and I thank God for this. I'm preparing myself and will be leaving sometime next week," an excited looking Rauqe said.

Rauqe, who has experienced the international 7s series atmosphere in 2003, hopes for a good time.

Fiji Rugby Union CEO Manasa Baravilala thanked Digicel Fiji for its support as it would boost their preparation for the upcoming tournaments.
