Before coming to Fiji, Brady revealed that his dad informed him what to expect at the Fun Flavour mini International Sevens tournament at the Churchill Park, Lautoka.

“He said to watch how I played and to have fun and get around the boys,” Rush said yesterday.

“Also he said to watch out for the Fijians when they are playing in Fiji because it’s the hardest place to play in the world, especially the sevens code.

He is trying to emulate his father’s legacy.

“Different kind of person so just trying to make a name so obviously someone has to do it to make my name. So obviously someone I follow,” he said.

“The weather seems to be interesting and we have to run as fast but yeah just sticking.

“We have been having the boys come back hard and finally get out again and play some rugby since July last year.”
