FORMER national sevens captain Setefano Cakaunivalu has a new role to play.

The Nakavika villager from Namosi has signed on with Digicel Fiji as its brand ambassador.

He follows in the footsteps of other well-known stars of Fiji such as Banuve Tabakaucoro and Iliesa Delana.

Cakaunivalu, who helped the national side win the Tokyo 7s in the HSBC Sevens World Series last month, said he was looking forward to engaging in more community activities.

"I am honoured to be signed on with Digicel Fiji as its brand ambassador and wish to thank them for having confidence in me and providing me this opportunity," he said.

"Since being part of the Fiji 7s side, I have had a lot of support from Digicel Fiji.

"This association will provide me with opportunities to be a part of many promotional and community activities."

Digicel Fiji's head of marketing Sheryl Singh said Cakaunivalu's term as brand ambassador would be for 18 months.

"He is a star rugby player, a household name and a role model for Fijians and fits in well with our plans," she said.

The former Namosi provincial rep will leave the country next month to take up a coaching role with the Sri Lanka Rugby Union.
