EMONI Mulevoro scored a hat-trick of tries to help Fiji start their Pacific Mini Games campaign on a high note with a 32-0 drubbing of hosts Wallis and Futuna.
Mulevoro started the onslaught that Beniamino Maravu ended with his first try in national colours at the Kafika Stadium in Hahake on Wallis.
Donasio Ratubuli and Mosese Saunivanua were also on the scoresheet.
Debutant Kelepi Namoua and Mulevoro kicked a conversion each.
Namoua was a standout player on the field as he was involved in all aspects of play.
Wallis and Futuna coach Sailosi Nawavu described Namoua's play as that of a young Emosi Vucago.
"The shortest player on the field but the most dangerous — just like Vucago," he said.
"Kelepi was hungry for the ball during the breakdowns, he took on the defence head on, he made every tackle count and basically, he played with a lot of heart."
Fiji team manager Isei Rayawa said they still had to make some improvements for their next games.
"There is still a lot of individual play and that really does not contribute to the style of play we want to play," he said.
