Stocky winger Josua Tuisova jetted into the country, got married and today joins the Vodafone Flying Fijians camp with the aim to make his Test debut against Italy on Saturday.

Tuisova, who is dubbed ‘The Bus’ for bulldozing his way through opponents, married his girlfriend Tarusila Voliwa in Lautoka yesterday.

He told the Fiji Sun that this was a beginning of a new chapter in his life before heading to his home in Vutuni, Ba, for a family celebration.

“I’m looking forward to play my first test against Italy this Saturday,” said the Olympic sevens team gold medallist.

“I’m ready and I’m looking forward to make my country proud. I’m also excited to begin a new life with my wife and this will definitely boost my rugby career.”

Tuisova indicated that he wants to play for the Flying Fijians at the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan.

“I want to do Fiji proud at the 2019 Rugby World Cup just like what we did in Rio,” he said.
