Nanise Kamikamica is making plans to travel with her daughter to watch the New Zealand-Vodafone Fijian Bati  Rugby League World Cup quarterfinal on Saturday.

And the proud mother of Bati young enforcer Tui Kamikamica wishes her son and his teammates the very best against the Kiiwis in Wellington.

She said seeing her son playing alongside the big names of the game made her feeling very proud of him.

“This is one of his dreams and for me as a mother seeing him play for Melbourne Storm and coming back to represent his country was something I am proud of,” Nanise said.

She and her daughter Francis are planning to travel to NZ to support Tui this weekend, provided that all the arrangements came through as planned.

“I am still working on it but I can’t confirm. But most probably I will be watching and cheering from home with my daughter.”

She said if they don’t get the chance to travel to NZ they just wanted to wish Tui and all the Bati players all the best in this weekend’s game.

“I just want my son to know that we are going to be supporting him and we will be praying for the team also for all of them especially him to do his best on the field,” she said.

She said her son realised what level he wanted in the game at a very young age.

“He used to watch a lot of rugby and league games and he promised me to one day representing Fiji,” she said.

“At first I am not really sure whether he meant what he said because that is what he told me. And I told him he needs to focus and work hard.”

She said Tui never looked back in his training but was also reminded balancing his rugby with his academic work.

Tui ‘s a member of the Queen Victoria School Under -18 team which won the Deans Trophy in 2011 before he was drafted by NRL club Parramatta Eels.
