Vodafone Fijian 7s rep Jasa Veremalua aims to make a mark at the Wellington 7s this weekend.

The Korotogo, Baravi, Nadroga native who has maternal links to Nakavu, Namosi is among the 14 players selected by Coach Ben Ryan for the second leg of the World Sevens Series.

The 26-year-old gentle giant regards the two tournaments as very crucial for Fiji’s preparation towards 2016 Rio Olympics.

“This is the Olympic year and the world is watching us, but we are special bunch of boys coached by Ben Ryan.”

Veremalua made his debut at the Wellington 7s in 2013.

“I just cannot wait to run onto the field where my international sevens career for Fiji began,”he said.

He said there was a lot of pressure on the players to compete for position with likes of Nemani Nagusa, Semi Kunatani, Apisai Domolailai, Pio Tuwai and utility Isake Katonibau.

“I have to prove myself because there are a lot of players fighting for a spot in the team,” he said.

Veremalua attributed his success to high school sweetheart girl Vani Volavola, 25, who were classmates from Sigatoka Methodist Primary

School to Sigatoka Methodist High School.

“I believe if everything is okay at home, the rest will be a good story,” she said.
