All Fijians should support the players, says Olympian Domolailai

Olympian and former Fiji Air­ways Fijian 7s forward Apisai Domolailai sends his best wish­es to the squad as they prepare for the Rugby World Cup Sevens in San Fran­cisco on July 20-23.

Domolailai was among the 204 re­cruits of the Republic of Fiji Military Forces who graduated during the pass­ing out parade at the Force Training Group in Nasinu yesterday..

The 29-year old is urging the people of Fiji to support the national 7s team.

“I would like to wish the boys all the best and hope that they will be bring­ing the Melrose Cup back to Fiji,” Domolailai said.

“All Fijians should get behind the boys and trust that they will deliver.”

The Laselase, Nadroga native said he is grateful as he has achieved one of his dreams.

“Apart from being a professional rugby player, I always wanted to be a soldier. And I want to thank Isake Ka­tonibau for his assistance in helping me,” he said

“I’m happy and excited that the 12 weeks of training has come to an end.”

He also said there were lots of memo­rable moments during training.

“A memorable moment was going through the final lapse of training and knowing that is was all coming to an end and having to meet all the men and women in our platoon.

“We grew close and now it is hard for us to say goodbye. It was one of the challenging moments during training and also adjusting to a new diet.”
