Taniela Sadrugu & Yasawa Islands.

Taniela Sadrugu, is the name that took rugby fanatics by storm when he was named 2020 Suva Rugby Player of the Year.

The 22-year-old from the province of Macuata has shown his appealing presence and strong rugby skills during the 2020 Skipper Cup, and the Super 7s Series competition this year.

Mr Sadrugu currently plays for the Flourishing Design Studios (FDS) Barbarians.

If there is one thing he is aiming for, it is to be part of the 7s team to the Olympic Games in July this year.

 

What Are Your Hobbies?
My hobbies include socialising, exploring new places, and playing rugby.

 

How Many Places Have You Visited So Far In Fiji?
I have been to Taveuni, Savusavu, Ba, Nadi, Ovalau, Suva and Labasa.

My rugby career enables me to visit quite a few places around the country, and I am always mesmerized by Fiji’s natural beauty.

 

What Is The One Spot You Would Take Every Visitor To, And Why?
I would take every visitor to the Suva Market food stalls for affordable food.

The food stalls encompass delicious local meals at affordable prices, ‘bula’ smiles, and our reputable ‘talanoa’ sessions.

Anyone who would want to know about Fiji in a short span of time, should come to these food stalls and experience the ‘Fiji’ life firsthand.

What Is Your Favourite Secret Backyard Spot?
My favourite secret backyard spot would definitely be Thurston Gardens in Suva.

Even while being so close to the busy city, Thurston Gardens provide peace and tranquility on a busy day.

An added bonus is the cool breeze from the seaside.

What Is Your Favourite Place In Fiji For A Meal?
Big Green Salad Bar at FNPF Plaza Food Court, Suva.

They have nutritious and affordable meals.

Also, the fact is that the owner is an inspiration to us ruggers.

It is sort of a life after rugby business– owned by a former rugby player and a friend.

So you can be rest assured the meals there are custom made for
ruggers.

What Is The One Fiji Spot On The Top Of Your Bucket List?
To visit Yasawa Islands.

It is reputed for its beauty and to firsthand experience it would be an absolute pleasure.

White sandy beaches, clear blue skies, lush vegetation and high mountain ranges sounds like a perfect escape to me.
