France- based Peceli Yato spend Mother’s Day with his family at the Nahehevia, Wa­icoba, Nadroga yesterday.

Since arriving on Friday, he was at Lawaqa Park, Sigatoka on Satur­day with his wife Mili and daugh­ter Vasiti to watch the Skipper Cup Premiership match in which BLK Nadroga thrashed Warwick Navosa 62-0.

“I just want to support my broth­ers playing for Nadroga and Na­vosa.

“I have been away for three years and I’m grateful to be home and cel­ebrate Mother’s Day here in Fiji,” the Clermont utility said.

The 25- year old Flying Fijian ad­mitted he has yet to recover from a hamstring injury and has not been included in John McKee- coached Flying Fijians squad for the June internationals.

“I hope to make the squad for the November tour.”

He will return to France on June 23 to prepare for the new season which starts on July 2.

“I think it will be another 11 months or one year before I re­turn.”

2018 season

Yato played 15 Top 14 games where he started in 10 matches and scored five tries. He featured in five Euro­pean Championship matches but started in three games.

“Last season was tough for Fiji­ans playing for Clermont as many of us like Alivereti Raka, Noa Nai­kataci and myself were injurd.

“I hope next season will be a good one for us and Clermont.”

Yato attended Waicoba District School, Sigatoka Valley High School and Sigatoka Methodist Col­lege.

He played for Fiji at the 2013 World Rugby Junior World Championship where he was selected by Clermont to join the academy.

He made his Top 14 debut against Bayonne in January 2014.

He was member of the Clermont team that won the Top 14 Shield in 2017.
