Former national rugby flanker Peniasi Nasalo will be laid to rest in Brisbane, Australia today.

Nasalo was a member of the Fijian team that toured England in 1970 and beat the British Barbarians 29-9 at Gosforth.

Former national captain Pio Bosco Tikoisuva said of the Nadroga man:

“He was a very obedient person, we always enjoy his company all the time, he said.

“We went together to England in 1970 where we defeated the British Barbarians. He’s good and contributed well as a team player.”

Nasalo also played for the St John Marist Rugby Club alongside Tikoisuva.

Former national rep Ilaitia Tuisese said Nasalo was a good rugby player.

“As a Nadroga man, he is very tough and is a very hardworking person,” he said.

Tuisese also described Nasalo as a down to earth type of person.

“He is a good team man and he blends in well with everybody in the team, he will be missed and my condolences to the family,” he added.

Funeral service will take place at Hosanna Logan City Church in Brisbane, Australia today and he will be laid to rest at Mt Gravatt Cemetery.
