Sevens wizard Waisale Serevi’s contribution to Fiji Rugby has finally been properly recognised.

This was after the Qarani, Gau, native was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award during the Fiji Rugby Awards Night on Saturday at the Novotel Suva Lami Bay Entertainment Centre.

“I thank God for being the source of my strength, the Fiji Rugby Union for giving me this award, it means a lot of for me,”Serevi said.

“All those good years we have learnt a lot, nothing comes easy in life and to be successful, we all have to work hard and do our part.

“I thank FRU for remembering all the things I’ve done for Fiji

“It’s good they recognise people in Fiji.

“I know how it’s like to play rugby in Fiji, you buy your own boots, pay your own fare and you have to perform at that level because you know fans are all around you wanting you to perform.”

The 7s maestro also believes the need for talented players to be dedicated and committed as winning required five per cent talent and 95 per cent hard work.

“Many talented players in Fiji think talent can bring them success,”he said.

“You need to work hard and set goals to be successful.

Support Baber

Serevi called on fans to support Vodafone Fijian 7s team and coach Gareth Baber.

“Ben Ryan has moved on, the boys and Baber need your support.”
