ACHIEVEMENT

“All this achievement couldn’t have been possible without the major development during my Kaji rugby days,” he said.

“It has helped my rugby a lot through the years and it is very important for upcoming players to go through that pathway so they can learn.

“I learnt a lot of rugby skills during my Kaji rugby days and at the same time it was fun so I urge all the kids out there to try it out.” Ofati said training can be tough but with sacrifice and patience we they achieve their goals.

He added the award would boost his rugby career as he aims to make it big in the game.

“I did not expect this award but I thank the Lord for my talent and my parents for their support.

“This achievement will surely push me to work harder and become a better player.

“Now that I’m in the Warriors and Under-20 teams I will try my best to make it into the Flying Fijians team,” he added.
