It was a start of a new journey for the former national fifteens rep Filipe Kuruvoli and sweetheart Finau Koroijiuta in Suva yesterday.

The pair who dated for four years were blessed at the Church of the Nazarene with families, relatives and friends gathering in numbers to witness the prestigious occasion.

Kuruvoli, 27 currently plays for Christchurch Rugby Club alongside fellow Fijian Sakenasa Aca and rated 2014 as one of his highlighting season in his rugby career.

“One of the highlighting moments in 2014 was playing alongside New Zealand Captain Richie McCaw who gave us a lot of tips which could assist us in our career,

“I played at flanker and being close to Richie was a big boost for me,” Kuruvoli said.

“One of the best advices he gave us was to keep on fighting, always retain possession, play smart rugby and focus in the whole 80 minutes,” he added.

The flanker who comes from a family of six has maternal links in Jiliva, Kadavu. He aims to be part of the Canterbury squad in the ITM cup this year.

“My aim this year is to move up another level from where I have left last year and be part of the Canterbury ITM squad,

“My 2015 resolutions is to communicate more with my families and friends in Fiji.”

Kuruvoli played top country rugby in Canterbury before joining Christchurch.

He was part of the Fiji U19 side that pulled Fiji out from the B-Division to be part of the Junior World Championship which is now the U20 competition.

He represented Nadroga at provincial level, featured for the Fiji Warriors and Barbarians during the Pacific Rugby Cup competition.

His wife Finau Koroijiuta, 24, is a graduate nurse from Sangam School of Nursing in Labasa.
