July 15, 2015 6:43 pm
Tonga rugby centre, Alipate Fatafehi is raring to take the field in the side’s Pacific Nations Cup clash against the Vodafone Flying Fijians this weekend.
The Fiji-born player has links to Nadroga and says nothing compares to playing against his countrymen on home soil.
“I’ve been playing for Tonga since 2009 but I’m always happy to be back on my home ground. This time I will be playing in a different jersey, the red one so I’m looking forward to this game on Saturday, especially since I’ve got a few friends who will be playing for Fiji and also family as well on the sidelines.”
Fatafehi plays club rugby in France for Lyon, alongside fellow Fijians, Wame Lewaravu, Ilikena Bolakoro and Avenisi Vasuinubu.
Tonga will take on the Flying Fijians at 3pm on Saturday at the ANZ Stadium and a live commentary will air on Bula FM with the voice of rugby, Graham Eden.
