While most celebrated Fiji’s win in Hong Kong last night, Tomasi Cama Senior played a role in the side winning the title for the first time since 2009.
Cama, who played with Dere in the national side in their glory days, was roped in by Dere and Etuate Waqa to help the side in Hong Kong.
Cama says he did it for the love of a nation.
“Yes, I was so happy to come and help the forwards and give advice and tips to players. We all achieved and it’s a great day for the boys and to those at home.”
And on his son playing on the opposite side as Tomasi Cama Junior was the Kiwi’s main man.
“Junior (Tomasi Cama) on the other side and as I have told a lot of people at the end of the day it will always come down to the All Blacks and the white jersey.”
Cama says the win reminded them of their days and it was encouraging to see Fiji 7s back on the winner’s podium.
“We feel proud of them and so is their country. I know there was some misunderstanding but in the end the players proved they were worthy of being selected into the team.”
The former Nabua star adds he will always be willing to help when required.
