Fiji Airways Fijian 7s veteran halfback Seremaia (Jerry) Tuwai could be making his next move after they won the 2018/19 HSBC World Sevens Series.

Arriving at Nadi International Airport yesterday, Tuwai dropped a hint when he told SUNsports that he did not know what the future holds for him.

“Right now, I don’t know what is there for me in the future,” he said.

When pressed further, Tuwai says, “Once you hear it then you will know it,”

Tuwai had earlier been linked to a club participating in the Major League Rugby (MLR) competition in the United States of America.

His Olympic team-mates Jasa Veremalua, Osea Kolinisau are also playing in the competition with Vatemo Ravouvou being the latest addition.

Tuwai thanked the players for standing up to the challenge and meeting the expectations of the nation by winning the series.

“We played well this season,” he said.

“Thanks to Kali (Kalione Nasoko) who captained the team during the first six tournaments.

“He got injured and Paula (Dranisinukula) took over.

“The new boys were consistent and they did a very good job. When you see them playing it is like they have been playing for a number of years.”

Tuwai said the determination of the new players was the reason he was able to play well.

“I’m not that good because I’m still learning year by year.

“I’ve many talented players around me in the past season. They do the running and also provide me support.

“They are the ones doing the hard work and I’m just there to bond the team. To the fans and our families who have been supporting us over the years even though we lost a few tournaments, I’m really grateful to them for sticking with us and believing in us to achieve what we wanted.”

Tuwai also highlighted that despite all his achievements in sevens rugby which included win the Olympic Games gold medal, he still cannot be compared to maestro Waisale Serevi.

“I’ll never be able to match Serevi. He is the king of 7s and until I die, I will still not be able to match him. Serevi is different and is special to all of us,” he said.
