Filipe Sauturaga, 23, was awarded the Campese-Sere­vi medal for being the man of the match in the Cup final of the 2019 McDonald’s Fiji Coral Coast Sevens at Lawaqa Park, Si­gatoka yesterday.

The Wainimakutu, Namosi na­tive who plays wing also scored a try for Police in the 17-0 victory over Tabadamu.

He scored a total of five tries in the two-day tournament.

“I thank the Lord for this achievement. This is my first year to play for the Police team in this Coral Coast 7s and to get this man of the match award in this tournament is incredible,” he said.

Sauturaga played for his village rugby Senibua before he joined Police.

“My aim is to try and be in the Fiji 7s team. I always learn and listen to the experienced players like Livai Ikanikoda, Keponi Paul and Rusi Matai so I thank them for their support and advice.”
