“My target is to be a Flying Fijian. McKee visited me early this year and gave me a programme to follow,” he said.

“I returned three weeks ago after our quarterfinal clash to spend some time with family before the season resumes in June. “ I need to do more in the new season.”

Tawalo attended Waicoba District School, Wesley College and played for Counties Manukau.
