Anare Tevita is ready to fight for a spot in the Vodafone Fijian 7s team for the World Sevens Series which gets underway in December in Dubai.

The 22-year-old Wainikeli, Taveuni native hopes to follow the footsteps of fellow villager and National Rugby League star Semi Radradra in making it big on the global stage.

Tevita recently returned from Samoa with the Taveuni team which won the Samoa Independence 7s last week.

“It’s is a dream and a privilege to be given this opportunity to join the squad and I’m forever thankful,” he said.

“I hope to follow Radradra’s footsteps and make it big on the international stage.

“I have been sacrificing a lot over the past three years and I will fight tooth and nail to make the cut for the side.

“There are a lot of good players in the squad and I will do my best and learn as much as I can while in camp. Everything is new to me, the system of training but I’m adapting.

“It’s all about my own performance and how I could prove my worth to the coach that I am willing to put my life on the line for my country.”
