All for Fiji

Rashneel Kumar In Hong Kong

RUGBY sevens legend Waisale Serevi believes players who are given the opportunity to represent Fiji should grab it with both hands.

The former national 7s skipper and coach said he never regretted playing for Fiji.

Serevi believes he is the person he is today because he remained faithful to Fiji and the sport.

The International Rugby Board Hall of Fame inductee said although the financial benefit of playing for Fiji was not much, there were other opportunities.

He said the chances of gaining lucrative contracts offshore were high.

"If given the opportunity to represent Fiji, you make the most of it because one day you will be done like me," said the 45-year-old who is now based in the US.

"I'm done playing for Fiji.

"There is not a lot of financial benefit playing for Fiji but it's an opportunity for opening doors so you might get a contract abroad.

"That's the key thing about playing for Fiji and I don't regret anything about playing for Fiji. I had my good times and that opened the door for me to go abroad."

Meanwhile, Serevi said the Hong Kong 7s had a special place in his life.

"If there is no Hong Kong 7s, there is no Serevi. It's like home away from home for me."

Serevi is in Hong Kong with his Serevi Rugby team to hold rugby 7s camps for children.
