Love and serve God with all your heart, be grounded, stay humbled, remain focused on the task before you.  You do that and you will never go wrong-Wallaby Samu Kerevi.

Being grounded on family values that he was taught all throughout his life has kept Wallaby and Queensland Reds rep Samu Kerevi humbled and focused over the years.

And the star rugby player said that understanding God’s love and sacrifice for his life has also been one of the major factors in his daily life and rugby career.

“Each time my head gets big, God always reminds me of my heritage, the struggles we faced and the sacrifices that my parents made for me,”Kerevi told SUNsports.

“That always keeps me grounded. That always teaches me to always be humbled and be grateful for everything I have been blessed with.”

Kerevi said he was happy with how his 2017 rugby season was even though he had struggles with injury.

“It was a bit of an up and down season, I had injuries which I had to attend to and had to have rehab so that was kind of a drawback. But it also gave me time to tend to them and heal well.”

 

Reach 4 your future foundation

Kerevi was at the Wyndham Resort to hand over a signed Wallaby jersey to the management of the hotel.

Wyndham Resort has been partnering with Reach 4 Your Future Foundation, an NGO based in Australia, helping supply over 800 school supplies to the children on the island of Koro.

“This has been such an awesome project. I love how the organiser Ganesh Sen has thought of the idea to help the islanders of Koro with school supplies. Everyone is in the Christmas spirit at the moment but then after that comes the preparation of going back to school. So it’s  awesome that we can ease this burden for the people by giving backpacks loaded with school supplies.”

The staunch Christian said he was looking forward to a better 2018 with the Wallabies and the Reds in the Super Rugby season.

“I hope to have more playing time and so I am keen to get back into training and into keeping fit so I can achieve this goal of having a better 2018 rugby season.

“My parents have been my biggest fans and support and I owe it to them and the rest of the family to give everything my best. And this is the same message I would like to tell every young Fijian.

“Whether you are in school, playing rugby or whatever field you’re in, give it your best. Give everything in life your best, love and serve God with all your heart, be grounded, keep humble and remain focused on the task before you. “You do that and you will never go wrong.”
