The 15-year-old says his rugby career is built on support from his family, and the past three years have been the toughest with Taka’s father away overseas.

“Having my dad away has been hard because he has been my inspiration in my rugby career. He was always there for me in every game, and at times I miss him, but I know he’ll be proud of me.”

QVS Under-15 will face Nasinu at 9.30am at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori on tomorrow.

In the Under-17 grade, QVS Knights takes on Marist Storm at 1.15pm while QVS Knights meets Ba Provincial Dragons in the Under-19 final at 3.10pm.
