Fiji Airways Fijian 7s squad members Semi Radradra and Josua Tuisova have now set their sights in making the Rugby World Cup Sevens team for San Francisco next month.

Dubbed ‘The Bus’ Tuisova said working hard and doing the extra hardyards would be the only way for him making the team.

“I will do my part and work hard, so whether I get picked or not will be totally up to the coaches and selectors,” Tuisova said.

“But one thing is for certain I will be doing my best in making the squad and winning the Melrose Cup.

“In addition if I’m picked. I will do my best to represent my country next month.”

During the double wedding celebration yesterday, his three-month old son Timoci Elijah Lagilevu Ratulevu Tuisova was also baptised at the Kecisemani Methodist Church.

This will not only fuel his aspirations but will also serve as an inspiration knowing that his son and wife Tarusila Vualiwa Tuisova will be cheering for him as well.

Meanwhile, Radradra knows fans want more from him after his outstanding performance for the Fiji Airways Fijian 7s team at the London 7s and for the Fiji Airways Flying Fijians during the recent Pacific Nations Cup.

“It is an honour to be given an opportunity to be in the extended squad and I will be working hard to make the final team.

“I am ready and prepared to answer the call of the nation and represent Fiji,” Radradra said.

The duo will join the 7s squad next week.
