Why do you play rugby league?

While at Queen Victoria School and seeing my schoolmates participate in training sessions and competitions, I decided to also join them. I switched to rugby league because I wanted to be the first family member to be involved in the sport. My family has been known to have rugby union history running through our veins.

What do you miss the most?

Two things; the most are food and fun back in my home village. I miss those fun times I used to enjoy whereby we would meet during school breaks as relatives, sharing laughter and jokes.

What is your advice to aspiring and young players?

My advice to all young and aspiring players intending to one day represent Fiji or to represent an NRL affiliated club overseas is to always appreciate any opportunity you are given, embrace it and move on with a specific goal in mind to achieve.
