Former All Blacks full back, Junior Malili ‘Mils’ Muliaina was present on Saturday during the Fijian Cup Nine’s competition in Sigatoka.

He was amazed by local teams’ performance during the competition.

“It’s just amazing to come here to the town where rugby is life and witness the brilliance performance by all these teams,” the ABs Centurion said.

“I can say with confidence that there are many raw talents here in Fiji and some of these players will probably go on to become rugby greats.”
