Son of Nadroga

Dharmendra Kumar, Suva
Sunday, January 28, 2018

THE annual Mana Whey Coral Coast 7s 2018 was no doubt a success. It was well organised and a lot of talent was identified.

The highlight prior to the tournament was the unveiling of the commemorative plaque on the world's only rugby walk of fame which was very special and unique

This year we welcomed DJ Forbes, the most capped sevens player as our ambassador .

Previous ambassadors were David Campese.Waisale Serevi, Jonah Lomu, Ben Gollings,Viliama Satala, Karl Tenana and Lote Tuqiri.

We have no doubt forgotten somebody special and the irony is that he is a son of Nadroga.

Noa Nadruku has to be recognised.What he did for Fiji on the field was unbelievable.

He was part of the Fiji team that won three years in a row in Hong Kong.

Nadruku, with his side-step, terrorised everyone on the field.

I hope that the organisers of the Coral Coast 7s will honour this Namatakula man who now lives in Australia.
