Viliame Rarasea and Albert Tuisue are ready to prove their worth for the Fiji Air­ways Fijian Giants at the Brisbane Global 10s at the Suncorp Stadium beginning on Friday.

Rarasea plays for the Counties Ma­nukau in Auckland, New Zealand and Tuisue for the Sydney Rams in the Australian National Rugby Championship.

“I’m pretty good and excited. A lot of talented players in the team and looking forward to the competi­tion,” said Rarasea, who will turn 25 in April.

The lock forward was part of the Fijian Under-20 side in 2013.

“I have not played 10s before and I’m looking forward to do some of­floading similar to what our 7s reps did in Hamilton, I guess.”

The Narikoso, Ono, Kadavu na­tive is looking forward to play against some of the best players in the world like Conrad Smith, Colin Slade, Jamie Mackintosh, Benson Stanley and Frank Halai and for­mer Wallabies skipper Ben Mowen.

Tuisue, a Nakasaleka, Kadavu na­tive has been in Australia for last two years and made the cut for the Sydney Rams last year.

“It is a real challenge and really proud to be part of the team,” he said.

“We are really prepared and I told the boys to have a positive mind­set.”
