Tall timber Sevuloni Mocenacagi got his contract terminated a year ago due to his disci­pline on the field.

He missed the Olympics but Fiji Airways 7s coach Ben Gollings gave a second chance to redeem himself.

As a champion runner with such a huge frame, Mocenacagi did turn hearts at Cape Town.

Coach Gollings, referring to Mocenacagi, said: “This year has been an interest­ing year for us. There was a lot to do in a very short period of time.

“He has taken the oppor­tunity and he knew that it was an opportunity he could grasp and he’s done that and he’s been fantastic for us.

“He’s a fantastic play­er. And I’m sure we’ve not seen the last of him. There’s more to come.”

Gollings added that Mocenacagi is very capa­ble both as a forward and as a back line player.

“He is an X-factor, a bit like a Jo Talacolo, he is in­credibly tall, he can move that he’s got the footwork like a winger.

“He’s a potent weapon to having in a team and to have that balance. And for him to be on this side was fantastic.”
