A proud moment for Isikeli Ratulevu to witness his two sons Josua Tuisova, 24 and his older brother Filipo Nakosi, 26, wedding at Votua Village in Ba yesterday.

“This is indeed a very proud day for me as a father. I am very proud of my boys for everything they have achieved not only for themselves but also for the family and Fiji,” Ratulevu said.

He said now both of them are stepping into a new arena with new challenges and wished them the best.

“I know that both of them will look after their families well because they are God- fearing and well mannered. But most of all, they are humble and loving individuals.”

Ratulevu thanked his two sons in following his advice by having the wedding at the end of their rugby seasons.

“I thank them for that, for being obedient and humble, a quality that they have maintained since their childhood despite the star status they have achieved in the world of rugby,”he said.

“Despite being up there among the best in the game, when they return home, they are just my two boys and today is not only a proud moment for them but for the whole family as well.”

An emotional Ratulevu thanked their families and friends for coming out for the wedding and was even surprised at the big turnout.

“It seems the whole 14 provinces of Fiji are here in Votua right now and I am thankful that they can all be here to share my sons’ special day,” he said.
