Evans proud of Fijian heritage

February 12, 2016 12:00 am

Sydney Roosters second-rower, Kane Evans is looking to show off his Fijian roots when he features for the NRL World All Stars side tomorrow.

The 24 year old will line-up alongside fellow Fiji Bati rep, Semi Radradra in the exhibition match against the Indigenous All Stars.

Evans’ spectacular form in his 23 appearances for the Roosters last season got him the nod in the star-studded side and he will be wearing his heritage on his sleeve come game time.

“My mother was born in Fiji and my father’s Australian so it’s actually good to be representing my Fijian and Australian heritage in this game.”

Fiji National Rugby League CEO, Timoci Naleba says Evans’ and Radradra’s inclusion in the side is a proud moment for the country, and should be a source of motivation to local players not to give up on their dreams of turning professional and earning overseas contracts.

The match between the NRL World Stars and Indigenous All Stars will kick-off at 8:50pm tomorrow at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia.
