Sports Editor

FORMER national rep Jona Qoro Naresia will be laid to rest in his village today.

Naresia was one of the first Fijian players to feature in the President's Overseas XV, now referred to as World 15s, that defeated England 28-11 in 1971.

Commonly known as "Do-or-Die" by his fellow teammates, Naresia passed away at his Narewa home in Nadi after a short illness last weekend.

His funeral is at 10am today and not tomorrow as reported yesterday.
