One of Fiji’s stars from the 2007 Rugby World Cup, now with English powerhouse Gloucester. Upcoming looseman who sprinted the length of the field to score a try that helped Fiji defeat japan 29-15 at Nagai Stadium in Osaka in 2006. He featured for the Flying Fijians in their opening match against Samoa in 2008 but was ruled out for the remainder of the season following an injury.

 Qera is a bit of a scoring machine with a work-rate that made him top try scorer in both the Colonial Cup and the Pacific Rugby Cup in 2006. He was later awarded the FMF player of the year at Fiji Rugby annual dinner. Qera featured for the Fiji U21s before debuting for the Flying Fijians against Samoa in 2005.
His reliable defence and speed from the back of the scrum earned him a spot in the Fiji 7s training squad for the 2006-07 IRB World series, but he could not attend because of his new contract.
