Unaisi Rauluni, Osea Bolawaqatabu exchange marriage vows

 

Fijian Pearls ace goal shooter Unaisi Rauluni married Australian based- rugby player Osea Bolawaqatabu at the Kedrakulu Assemblies of God church in Sigatoka yesterday.

“I’m excited,” she told SUNsports.

“I’m glad that my family members were at the wedding and I just want to thank them for coming over, also to my mum for guiding me and being there for me all the time.”

Unaisi is the daughter of the late former national rugby sevens captain Vesito Rauluni.

“Unfortunately my dad was not able to see me today so it was pretty much emotional and I cried but I know my mum is here and I thank her for the support. First I will have to plan things with my husband before I start training with the team once again.”

The couple first met in Glasgow, Scotland during the 2013 World Youth Championship where Unaisi was playing for the national U20 netball team while Bolawaqatabu was with the Fijian U20 rugby side.

“It was love at first sight,” said Bolawaqatabu.

“We are both athletes and will continue to support each other on and off the field.”

Bolawaqatabu recently signed a three-year contract with the West Harbour Rugby Club in Australia.

The Yavulo, Nadroga native said being away was a challenge but he is grateful to God for bringing them together.
