Meli Kundrau and Ifereimi Tovilevi, who respectively scooped the Jona Lomu Medal and the Campese-Serevi medal at the McDonald’s Coral Coast 7s on Saturday, have big dreams.

They both have jointly made a pledge to represent Fiji in the future.

The Namatakula, Nadroga duo featured strongly for Ratu Filise against five-time champions Police in a 17-14 final loss.

But the duo nearly led the team to victory in a pulsating match at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka.

Kunadrau, 20, and Tovilevu, 19, also made their debut for the Ratu Filise senior team.

They were groomed by coach Etika Tovilevu in the youth team and represent top talent from Nadroga.

Kunadrau, who played for five years in the youth team, said: “This is a beginning for a long road of rugby.

“It is great to be acknowledged for our talents. With the ultimate goal to represent the country.”

Tovilevu, who played for two years in the youth team, said: “I want to represent Fiji 7s but you need to start from somewhere.”

Namatakula is well known for producing wingers such as former Canberra Raiders and 7s star Noa Nadruku and Lote Tuqiri to name a few.
