It will be a special moment tomorrow for the Naibalebale, Viwa, Yasawa native Mosese Voka.

He has been named to start from the bench for the Vodafone Flying Fijians against Manu Samoa at the ANZ Stadium.

Voka, who has made a quick transition from the Telecom Fijian Warriors to the Vodafone Flying Fijians squad in 2016, feels blessed to be part of the Pacific Nations Cup squad fighting for a spot in the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

“I want to thank head coach John McKee and the management for having faith in me, believing in me and giving me this chance,” Voka said.

“This is a dream come true for me and I was not expecting the call to don the Flying Fijians jumper to come early but I want to thank the Lord for providing me this opportunity.”

The 28-year-old started playing club rugby for Vio in Lautoka before joining the Maroons senior team. He joined the National Fire Authority in 2014 where he also started playing for Suva.

Voka also have maternal links to Muaira, Naviti, Yasawa.

“This is a special moment for me and my family especially my mum and I want to thank everyone who guided me in my  career.”

 

We worry about ourselves- Koroi

Prop Taniela Koroi strongly believes they will need to focus on themselves and not their opposition.

“We are not too worried about the game, we just worry about ourselves and what we have been working on.

“We do that well and we will be ready for contest on Saturday,” Koroi said.

The 26-year-old is calling on members of the public to come out in numbers and support the team.

“We want the public to come out in numbers and support the boys.”
