New Zealand 7s star Salesi Rayasi is looking forward to making his debut for the Hurricanes in the Super Rugby next season.
Rayasi is one of the debutants named in the Wellington based side which announced its 38-member squad today.
The former Basketball player, Rayasi says it was his dad who forced him to take up rugby.
“I genuinely thought I’m going to play Basketball but Dad forced me to play and didn’t wanted me to give up rugby. It’s maybe change in environment but I have managed it well in my rugby career.”
The 22-year-old outside back is looking forward to learn more about his craft from star backs Nehe Milner-Skudder, Ben Lam and Wes Goosen.
The Super Rugby kicks off in February next year.
