Three members of the Gold medal winning Fiji seven’s team are keen to switch to rugby league.
This was revealed after reports came from the rugby league week in Australia saying that Masivesi Dakuwaqa, Jerry Tuwai and Jasa Veremalua have attracted massive interest from clubs.
It was stated that the trio have been brought to the NRL by former Bulldogs centre Daryl Millard who is part Fijian and set to become an NRL accredited player manager.
Millard says they are very keen and would be sensational in the league.
He says there are highlights of them on YouTube and they’ve been sent out to the clubs, who have been blown away by their speed and size and there is a lot of interest.
Millard adds Masivesi is very keen, being the youngest of the three and he has already played some league in Fiji.
He says rugby has never had a higher profile in Fiji since they won the gold medal and the players are treated like gods.
Millard says when they won the gold, the country stopped and celebrated for a week – it may be the biggest thing to ever happen to Fiji.
