LEADING a team is a challenge that has inspired Iliesa Yalovigau in his young rugby career.
The Suva under-13 captain said it was a privilege to lead a team during the Milo Kaji rugby tournament.
Suva beat Nadi 10-5 in the under-13 final, an achievement Iliesa says is the highlight of his primary school rugby career.
"It's a privilege to be the captain of the team and to win again this year is a bonus for us," the 13-year-old said.
The Ono lad from Kadavu has skippered the team since the under-9 grade.
The same group of players have won the U10, U11 and U13.
"This is the last year for most of us to compete in the Milo Kaji competition. I think to win this title is a perfect farewell gift for us."
From the 25-member squad, only four players will continue next year.
Yalovigau dedicated the win to the remaining players and team management that will represent Suva in the under-14 grade next year.
The Class Eight student of Marist Brothers Primary School said his ultimate goal was to wear the Flying Fijians jumper.
"In the future, I want to be a Fiji rep. My idol is Waisale Serevi and I want to follow his footsteps," the little scrumhalf said.
On Friday night, the victorious side was hosted to a celebration dinner by the parents and team management.
