Turagava Joins Paeroa West

Orisi Turagava departed yesterday to join his new club Paeroa West Rugby Club in New Zealand.

The 29-year-old Naselai Village native from Rewa looks forward to the new experience.

“It’s a dream come true for me to play overseas and I’m thankful for this opportunity to develop my rugby career.”

Turagava has been an influential player for the Raiwaqa Rugby Club in the Suva Ruva Rugby Union Escott Shield competition since 2004.

“I will miss playing for Raiwaqa and Suva but at the same time playing for my new club in New Zealand will help me to develop my rugby career,” Turagava said.

“I thank God for giving me the strength and the SRU for giving me the opportunity.

“Special mention goes SRU president Francis Kean for his vision.”

Turagava is the third player from SRU to join Paeroa West RC following Savenaca Tabakanalagi and Peni Kamakorewa last year.

Kean reminded Turagava to value the opportunity, play hard, remain committed and focus on furthering his rugby career.
