Playing with the ability and teamwork is what Vodafone Flying Fijians lock Nemia Soqeta believes will boost the side.

With Fiji in Pool A alongside Australia, England, Uruguay and Wales, Soqeta is confident of a positive outcome.

“We believe we are ready enough to go into this tournament. Everyone says it is a pool of death which we are in, but we as a team believe in ourselves and will go in as underdogs.

“The team are going to play to our abilities and cause some upsets in the tournament,” Soqeta said.

Making it to the Fiji team in November last year, the Yaro, Malolo native counts himself lucky to be with the Flying Fijians.

“This is the very first time I am making it to the World Cup,” he said. “I have been brought up in the village and did a bit of school in the mainland before I headed off to New Zealand. That is where my rugby started off and then carried on in Japan and then France and now I am here.”

The former Ratu Kadavulevu School student said yesterday that his family was a big motivator for him.

“The motivation is always my family and before going on the field I make sure I communicate with them. I am happy to play because I know it is my profession.

“There are different ways people get motivated but for me my family is always the motivation that I play for.”
