Fiji's first choice fullback since 2000, now third in Fiji's all-time list of try scorers with 16. Elusive runner, deceptive speed and strength, and good defence. Possesses a mammoth punt. Best remembered for his brace of tries against All Blacks in 2002 and a wonderful solo effort in the RWC 2003 against Japan. Came onto the scene with the NZ Fijians at the Fiji 7s in 1998, though he had earlier played for Fiji U21s in 1996. Moving to Nadroga saw him being included in the provincial team and then the Fiji U23 game against Canada in 1999. he played in the winning team at the 2000 Hong Kong 10s and Melrose 7s, before former national coach Greg Smith gave him Test debut against Tonga in the Epson Cup in May 2000.

Best rugby memory: Lots of good memories but the best one is scoring two tries against the All Blacks in Wellington.

Worst Rugby memory: Losing the Farebrother to Nadi while I was playing for Nadroga. I missed the last kick at goal which would have made a difference.
