Vodafone Fijian 7s strongman Masivesi Dakuwaqa is keeping a low profile for this weekend’s Hong Kong 7s tournament. The Cakova native from Moala, Lau told SUNsports that he is excited of the fact that this is going to be his first Hong Kong tournament.

“This is the tournament where all Fijian players look forward to in the Series,” the soft spoken security officer at the Nadi International Airport said.

“I’m prepared to give my best. But we have to stick to what Ben Ryan wants us to do.”

Masivesi said he is aware that all teams would be targeting them as they lead the 2015/16 World Sevens Series.

“We have been always reminded that we are not going there to make the numbers but the objective is for us to defend the title.”

Manager Airport landside operations and customer services Joe Gray said the Nadi International Airport stakeholders are proud to see an ADT security officer being part of the team.

“Yes we are very proud of Masivesi and his achievement and we salute and respect his commitment,” Gray said.

“For us it’s also a milestone achievement and he has also paved the way for the many talented sporting people that work here at the airport.

“He is not the first that has made the cut to the Fiji team and considering that he did it while on a 24-hour shift. The challenge is that nothing is impossible and if Masivesi can do it, so can any airport worker.”

Gray said a group of supporters from Nadi International Airport are expected to follow Masivesi and the Vodafone Fijian 7s team to Hong Kong this week.
