Ma'afu pleased to represent Fiji

Vodafone Flying Fijian prop Campese Ma’afu says he has never regretted choosing Fiji over Tonga.
Ma’afu is of Tongan descent and has maternal links to Fiji.
He was first given the chance to don the white jumper in 2010.
“It’s actually one of my biggest career changes – it changed my life. It changed who I was. I was just a guy playing club rugby and next think I know i was playing for my country. I chose Fiji over Tonga just because I knew the opportunities were here and I knew I would never make regrets after that.”
Ma’afu’s rugby career highlight was when he and his brother Salesi played their first international test at Canberra Stadium in 2010 – in opposing teams.
When he finishes from rugby, Ma’afu would like to be known as the guy who made a difference to Fiji rugby’s front row.
He loves eating local bread, listening to music and his favorite song is Bryan Adam’s Summer of 69.
Campese is part of the Flying Fijians team that will take on England in the opening match of the Rugby World Cup on 19th September at 7am.
