Nadi Rugby Union treasurer Jeff Tamata said, “He would be very fondly known for making everybody laugh with his funny jokes and dance moves. “Nadi Rugby has surely lost one of its great sons. Fiji Rugby Union will surely miss his service and the Japan national team will surely miss their preferred liaison officer.”
