Pita Gus Sowakula in All Blacks colours in Hamilton, New Zealand, on June 13, 2022.

Sowakula was among four Fijian players named in the All Blacks squad for the July

Test matches against Ireland. The Chiefs loose forward stands at 195 cm (6 ft 5),

Sowakula excelled at basketball and represented Fiji at the 2012 FIBA Oceania Under-19

Championships and later for the Otago Nuggets. Sowakula was also a gifted rugby

player and was named the most promising player at the Taranaki Rugby awards in 2017,

two years after claiming a silver medal in basketball with Fiji at the 2015 Pacific Games.

All Blacks head coach Ian Foster said Sowakula’s performances in the 2022 DHL

Super Rugby Pacific Season had seen many take note of the powerful number 8, who were also

impressed with his work-rate and explosive ball carrying.  Photo: Chiefs
