Vosayaco in top form

Sikeli Qounadovu In Dubai
Saturday, December 02, 2017

FIJI sevens selectors should not turn a blind eye to Rupeni Vosayaco, a young man filled with a lot of energy and potential needed for national duties.

The 25-year-old New Zealand-based winger was in devastating form for his Lanka Lions side in the Open Men's Gulf tournament which runs alongside the Emirates Dubai 7s.

Playing in the forwards but a backline in the 15s code, the Nabalebale, Cakaudrove native proved too handy for defenders brushing off would be tacklers, making clean breaks and setting up tries after tries for his side.

His ability to read the game, coupled with deceptive speed, agility and fearsome tackles is something our national selectors might have to seriously consider or risk losing him to the Land of the Long White Cloud.

Rupeni was invited by the Lanka Lions to be part of the team.

The team was bolstered by another Fijian Meli Koroinamara who played at first five eight.
