“I’ve worked so hard to wear the white jersey and the result has finally come out and I’m very happy with my achievement.”
“I also want to thank my family for their support and the Tabadamu Rugby Club. I feel very excited that my dream has finally come true.”
Waqavulagi is the youngest brother of former national 7s rep Sitiveni Waqa.
