Prop forward, Taniela Koroi is hoping to get a dream call-up to the Vodafone Flying Fijians run-on side for the Rugby World Cup clash against Uruguay this week.
The 24 year old was enjoying his second week with new club, Mogliano in Italy, before answering an SOS call from the Fiji team to replace injured prop, Isei Colati.
“I saw my cell phone and there was a message from Humphrey Tawake (manager) that I’m needed. I read it and was a bit shocked by the news. I was surprised that my mate, Isei Colati got injured but at the same time I was happy that I got my dream to come to the World Cup.”
The Flying Fijians will take on Uruguay in its final appearance in the 2015 World Cup at 7am on Wednesday.
You can watch the match live on FBC TV and a live commentary will air on Bula FM and Radio Fiji One.
