“I’ve been trying to don the national jumper since I dropped out from primary school,” Qoro said.

I’ve been through a lot but I did not give up.

“Being part of the Fiji team to the Oceania tournament is a start for me and I will make sure to take part in the 2014/2015 HSBC Sevens World Series.”

The 23-year old who has maternal links in Savudrodro, Savusavu played for Wardens from 2010 to 2011 and joined the Yamacia in 2012 where he was spotted by the Vodafone Fiji 7s coach.

“I thank the Vodafone Fiji 7s selectors for having faith in me as this is the start for everything for me,”he said.

“I’m ready to make my country proud.”

Fiji is in Pool B with Cook Islands, Solomon Islands and Tahiti.

New Zealand is the top seed in Pool A with American Samoa, Papua New Guinea and Niue. Samoa tops Pool C alongside Australia, Tonga and New Caledonia.

Teams will each play three pool matches. At the conclusion of the pool rounds the top two teams in each pool, as well as the next two best performed teams across the three pools, will progress to the quarter-finals.
