His dream was to play for the Fiji Airways Men’s 7s team but All Blacks and Crusaders winger Seta Tamanivalu has admitted it is tougher to get into the national sevens team when competing with other Fijians especially his family members.
Tamanivalu, Jordan Taufua and Mitch Hunt arrived at the Nadi International Airport last night with the Super Rugby Trophy that the Crusaders won this year.
The prestigious trophy is in Fiji for the first time, and this visit is part of a Fiji Airways promotion.
Tamanivalu says he is honored to be part of it and believes that this is big for local rugby fans as most of the people in New Zealand have not seen the trophy.
The 25-year-old also shared his story before becoming an All Black last year.
Tamanivalu adds that being part of the Crusaders is a blessing as it is the only team to win eight Super Rugby titles.
He says he is proud of his achievements.
Tamanivalu and his nephew Manasa Mataele will be spending Christmas with their family at their village in Yasawa before flying back to New Zealand to prepare for the 2018 Super Rugby season which kicks off in February.
He believes they can successfully defend the title again next year.ADVERTISEMENT Listen to the latest news on our 5 radio stations Legend FM, Viti FM, Radio Sargam, FM96 and Navtarang.
