Nakarawa for top award

Maciu Malo
Sunday, May 18, 2014

LANKY forward Leone Nakarawa could become the second Fijian to win the Glasgow Warriors player of the season award.

The Kadavu native is one of the six players being short-listed for the Warriors top award that was won by Flying Fijians halfback Nikola Matawalu last year.

The other players in the running are Scotland and Warriors lock forward Johhny Gray, former Lions' captain Josh Strauss, Tommy Seymour, Alex Dunbar and Rob Harley.

Nakarawa is being short-listed among five other players with the highest number of votes throughout the season for the McCrea Financial Services Player of the Month awards.

The 25-year-old Fijian international joined the club last year after representing Fiji at the Rugby World Cup Sevens in Russia and the 2011 Rugby World Cup in New Zealand.

Nakarawa also featured in the six HSBC IRB 7s series events.

The former Fijian soldier made his debut for the Flying Fijians against Tonga in 2009 and also had a stint with the Saracens for the 2011 premiership season.

Yesterday Nakarawa and fellow former Flying Fijian Nikola Matawalu helped the Warriors win their RaboDirect Pro 12 semi-final against Munster 16-15.
