Rewa Rugby Union secretary Petero Kaveni was lost for words after being announced as the Fiji Rugby Union’s Team Administrator of the Year.

Kaveni could not believe what was transpiring before his eyes as he walked to receive his award during the Fiji Rugby Awards Night at the Sheraton Fiji Resort at Denarau in Nadi on Friday night.

“I could not believe it at first because I was content with of being nominated but the fact to be announced the winner was really humbling,” Kaveni said.

He was nominated alongside Ratu Ovini Bokini and Tiko Matawalu.

“I thought I was just going to be a part of the show and not actually winning anything but when I heard my name being called out I was shocked and overwhelmed,” an emotional Kaveni said.

“I want to thank God for this achievement and acknowledgement of my hardwork. I want to dedicate it to my wife and six daughters back at home.”

Kaveni said they were the ones who supported his aspirations as RRU’s secretary.

“Also I would like to thank our union president Ro Vilive Tuisawau and all our executives for trusting me with this responsibility,” he added.
