Size and age does not matter for 14-year-old, Nadi Blazers 7s winger Christina Shaniya Prasad as she pursues her dream to don the Fiji Air­ways Fijiana 7s jumper.

“I love playing rugby and for me to be given a chance to play in this tournament is a good start and yes I’m aiming to be­come a Fijiana in the future,” she said.

The Maharisi Sanatan College Year 9 student said, it has always been her dream of representing her country in the World Sevens Series. She could very well be the first Indo-Fijian player if she gets selected.

“I’m not intimidated nor am I scared of playing against the older and heavier players, I just want to go out there and do my best to help my team win.”

Prasad said she always wanted to be like the great Fijian 7s maestro Waisale Ser­evi.

“He is my favourite player and I just want to play like him.”

The youngster plays wing for the Blaz­ers side that are playing at the Ram Sami Nasinu Rugby 7s tournament at Ratu Ca­kobau Park, Nausori.

The competition continues today.

China One 36–0 Nadroga, Fijiana Selec­tion One 34–0 Nadi Aviators, China Two 34–0 Nadi Blazers, Fiji Selection Two 26–0 Marist Seahawks.
