He was the unsung hero of our victory in the Hamilton 7s in New Zealand.

Fiji Airways Fijian 7s utility player Kalione Nasoko has the calibre of turning things around when the odds stacked are against us.

Who would forget his 75-metre run to score the winning try against Samoa in the Cup quarterfinals when time was up? What about the off-load passes to winger Alasio Naduva to score two tries against South Africa in the Cup final as we fought back from a 5-17 deficit to win.

In Las Vegas, USA, the Yasawa native will be our go-to-man again when the going gets tough at the Sam Boyd Stadium.
