After a disappointing season with the national side in the World Series, Tuwai has decided to have another shot at the Olympics.

Tuwai says he knows he still has a lot to offer on the field.

“I think, no one will pass on that opportunity and for me too, I want another gold for Fiji, not for me but for Fiji. I know I still have things to give for my country and yeah I’ll try again for next year and I will try my best to play in another Olympics.”

Tuwai understands the fans frustration after a winless season but there’s always light at the end of the tunnel.
