Wallabies wing Marika Koroibete has no regrets passing up the chance to help pilot the Vodafone Fiji Bati into the Rugby League World Cup semifinals in 2013.

Hours after the Vodafone Fiji Bati take on New Zealand in the World Cup quarterfinals in Wellington on Saturday, Koroibete will be gracing Twickenham for the first time as the Wallabies chase redemption for four straight losses last year to Eddie Jones' England.

The former Melbourne Storm flyer knows precisely where he would rather be.

Koroibete is hoping that the Bati can go far as reaching the final this year.

So while he wishes his former teammates all the best, Koroibete is very much living in the moment, relishing his new role in the Wallabies' starting XV after making the code switch on last year's spring tour following the Storm's NRL grand final loss to Cronulla.

He bagged a crucial try in a Bledisloe Cup win over the All Blacks, tasted more success in his first test in the northern hemisphere last Saturday against Wales and now hopes to experience the wonders of Twickenham.

The Wallabies will take on England at 4am Sunday.
