A Navosa farmer will realise one of his dreams coming to reality after winning a trip to the World Rugby Sevens Hong Kong tournament next month.

Isei Raiova, 23,  was ecstatic last Saturday when retail giant Courts (Fiji) Limited announced him as the West Division winner of the competition.

“I still cannot believe it; this is like a dream come true,” Mr Raiova said after being presented his Hong Kong 7s stadium tickets at Courts Mega in Nadi.

The prize also include return trip airline tickets and accommodation during the three-day tournament.

The Nawairabe man from Navosa said it would be the first time for him or any member from his family to travel abroad.

“I am a typical farmer who rides the horse early morning and plants yaqona (kava) to make a living back in the village ,” he said.

Mr Raiova had bought a Sony Bravia 32 inch television set at Courts.

Courts (Fiji) Limited chief operating officer, Hamendra Prasad said: “It was a three month promotion for LED screens and homeware system sold to win air tickets to the Hong Kong 7s.

“We had two winners one from the West and the other from the East.”
