Fiji’s Olympic gold medal winning 7s captain Osea Kolinisau wishes the Fiji Airways Fijian Drua well,

And he made special mention of his former Covenant Blue team-mate Tevita Naqali who will start from the bench in the first round of the National Rugby Championship against Melbourne Ris­ing at Ratu Cakobau Park, Nausori to­morrow.

Now playing for Houston Strikers in the United States, Kolinisau will be play­ing halfback for his Covenant Brothers in the Escott Shield semifinal tomorrow against Police Blues.

“I would like to wish the Fijian Drua the best and I know we want a good start in the first game of the season and play­ing at home,” Kolinisau said.

“Cheer for the boys to help get the job done. We will backing the Drua and es­pecially one of the boys from the club, Tevita Naqali.

“Hopefully he plays well and we just want to let him know that the boys will be cheering for him.”

Kolinisau said he was happy to be back playing for his former club.

“I am excited to be back with the boys and I am really happy seeing this young players’ progress in the season,” he said.

“This is a good opportunity and I thank the management and the coaches for let­ting me back in the club and inviting me back to play with them.

“Happy to wear the Covenant Brothers (now Covenant Blue) jersey again, I am hoping to play at fullback but it depends on where the coach puts me.”

Kolinisau added he has no plans to join the Fiji Airways Flying Fijians as he will be returning to his club, Houston Strikers

“Right now it’s all about catching up on fitness, playing touch and playing a few games,” he added.

“I am focused on taking a break and playing for Covenant and going back to prepare for the new season.

“I played 15s then I switched to sevens. I think I felt in love with sevens as it pro­vides more space. But we will see how everything goes. We will make a lot of plans but I know God knows where you need to be best.”
