He was instrumental in the 38-15 victory over Nailaga (Ba), 45-0 win over Vio Panthers and 14-12 win over Ratu Filise in their final pool match.

The 17-year old is on a rugby scholarship at the Hastings Boys College in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand.

“I want to follow into the footsteps of my brother Waisake. The reason why I want to play for New Zealand is they are a good team.”

He has been studying in NZ for nine months. His elder brother Meli Naholo is also on a rugby scholarship in NZ

“I am on holiday and I will be returning next month to New Zealand.”

The Nadroumai, Nadroga native plays wing in the abbreviated code and wing, centre or fullback in 15s. He is a big fan of former All Blacks first five-eighth Daniel Carter.
