Burotu wants a spot in fifteens

Maciu Malo
Monday, June 09, 2014

FORMER national 7s rep Seremaia Burotu is aiming for a spot in the Flying Fijians outfit.

The France-based inside centre was in top form for Tavua helping his side beat Suva 15-12 in their Skipper Tuna competition match at Garvey Park on Saturday.

Burotu said representing the country would be one of his main targets.

"All players in the country are dreaming to wear the famous white jersey and I am no exception," he said.

"I know there are many good players in the side but it will not stop me from pursuing my dream.

"I am happy to have adapted well to the local competition and I am looking forward to more games.

"But my aim is to secure a spot in the Flying Fijians team."

The Korovou native has also set his dream on next year's Rugby World Cup.

"My long-term goal is to represent the country at the world cup."

"I am looking for the challenges and I am ready to battle against my fellow Fijians for a spot in the team."

Burotu has also set his eyes on the Rio Games in 2016.

"I will be honoured to represent the country for the Rio Olympics and time will tell if I am considered or not.

"Right now my focus is to help Tavua do well in the local competition before I head back to France," he added.
