It was another big moment yesterday for Fiji Airways Fijian 7s star Meli Derenalagi.

After making his debut at the 2018-19 World Sevens Series in Dubai replacing injured Seremaia Tuwai and capping off with being named World Rugby 7s Rookie of the Year in Paris last weekend, Derenalagi was promoted to Able Seaman at the Captain Stanley Brown Naval Base, Walu Bay, Suva.

The Nawaka, Nadi, native was honoured for his sensational performance with Fiji Airways Fijian 7s team manager Jone Niurua who was also promoted to Chief Petty Officer.

They were instrumental in Fiji winning the World Sevens Series title after four years.

“I would like to thank my colleagues for the warm welcome and I’m grateful for all the support we had been receiving throughout the series.”
