‘Rasta’ Rasivhenge Here to Share

HSBC Sevens World Series referee, Fhatuwani Rasivhenge commonly known as Rasta will be part of the 2014 Bayleys Fiji Coral Coast Sevens and is hoping to share his knowledge with local referees.

This is the first time Rasivhenge is visiting Fiji. He is looking forward to meeting the locals and learn our culture.

“It’s all about sharing knowledge and learning different cultures,” he said.

Rasivhenge is looking forward to the school visits planned and also the community visits and is urging for more people to take up rugby as a referee.

“I urged more people to get involved in refereeing. Rugby is a wonderful sport. I enjoy it and you get to set your boundaries holistically as a person and with the territory comes a lot of advantages.”

Rasivhenge has referred Fiji’s matches during the HSBC Seven World Series and says his friendship with Fijian players has never got in the way of his profession.

“I get along with the Fiji guys and some of them are my good mates but when you do the job, you have to be professional,” he said.

In 2014, Rasivhenge was recruited by the Australian Rugby Union and he appeared as an Australian referee in the IRB Sevens World Series says it is a massive change.

“It is a massive change for me. My fiancé stays in Australia so I had to make the move and also it was a rugby decision.

He says it is a good change with good steps going forward.

Rasivhenge was overwhelmed with the support at the Nadi International Airport yesterday.
