It was a dream come true for the 25 year-old centre, Ratu Luke Nadurutalo to finally get the opportunity to be selected for the Vodafone Fijian Residents in the Battle of the Bati on October 7 at the ANZ Stadium in Suva.

Nadurutalo, who hails from Ko­rolevu, Navosa, previously played for Penrith Panthers and current­ly plays for Nadera Panthers.

“I am really excited to get select­ed to represent the Residents side and I’m looking forward to a good game in the upcoming Battle of the Bati,” Nadurutalo said.

“This is like a dream come true and also a privilege for me to fi­nally get to play for te Residents team as I have grown watching the former Vodafone Fijian Bati reps play which really motivated me to work hard and uplift my career.

“I had been playing 15s for a long time until I went over to Australia and switched to rugby league.

“Previously, I represented Saint Mary’s Rugby Club for three years in Australia and also played for the Penrith Panthers in only two of their matches.

“Last year I was injured and re­turned to Fiji and played for the Nadera Panthers.

“And I am also keeping my fin­gers crossed to get selected for the Vodafone Fijian Bati side for the 2017 RLWC later this month.”
