Former Vodafone 7s rep Samuela Matea Saqiwa wed his sweetheart Adi Lusiana Campbell, yesterday.

The couple exchanged vows in front of family and friends at the Saunaka Methodist Church in Nadi.

Saqiwa, 24, was on cloud nine on his big day and was not counting himself out of making the team to the 2016 Rio Olympics.

“It is a big day for me because this shows that there other important matters in life,” Saqiwa said.

He said he would be more serious towards in his rugby career.

“There is always competition, but I just have to be step up another notch,” Saqiwa said.

“I’ve been in the team and I know the atmosphere during training and it’s all about performance.”

According to Saqiwa, they have been close since they were students at Ratu Navula College five years ago.

“We’ve known each other since high school days, but I guess it is all history today,” he said.

His wife Adi Lusiana, who hails from neighbouring Nakavu village, said her prayers had been answered. “It started five years ago, but today is the happiest day of my life,” Adi Lusiana said.

Tokatoka Westfield Dragons head coach Epeli Lagiloa spoke on behalf of Saqiwa’s family.

“He is one of those towering lock forwards and a good player,” Lagiloa said.

“The onus is on him to make the Rio Olympics, but he must impress Vodafone Fijian 7s coach Ben Ryan.”

Saqiwa plays for Saunaka RC and Jacks Nadi  Rugby senior team and played for the Vodafone 7 team last year.
