Seremaia Bai reminded the children yesterday that they should put education first and rugby second.

The former Flying Fijians second-five eighth was the chief guest during the launch of the 2016 Rewa Galaxy Kaji Rugby competition in Suva.

“Education is more powerful so it is better to put your education first and rugby second,” Bai said.

“It’s sad that former rugby players and fellow friends are struggling now because there have no Plan B for the future.

“Its been a long journey for me, but there is always a vision to come back and improve the sport in Fiji, especially Kaji rugby.

“I want the children to follow their dreams and work hard and do the same thing that I have done through the years.

“It opens a door where you can have a better opportunity in life as well.

“I’m really honoured to share my story that nothing can stop you if you believe in yourself.

“I’ve been playing professional rugby for 16 years. I’m a living testimony of what rugby can do to a person as I only reached Year 10 and was raised by a single parent and I’ve managed to have a successful career just by playing rugby.”

Bai acknowledged the Kaji Rugby Association, the Fiji Rugby Union and Fiji Dairy Limited for making the event possible.

“I hope we can put up a better and positive pathway, learning from each other and sharing ideas. Hopefully, we can come together and work towards a common goal where the children can be better rugby players and persons in future.”
