Fiji Water Flying Fijians prop Samu Tawake has had a great experience so far at the Rugby World Cup.

Tawake says he’s learning from some of the best in the business like Peni Ravai and Eroni Mawi.

“It’s like a family here you know. They help us and we help them, everyone accepts learning from everyone no matter your age or experience, everyone is ready to listen and help out one another.”

Tawake who is yet to make his World Cup debut is thankful to be part of a squad that appreciates each other and they never stop learning.

The Fijian Drua prop says there is also healthy competition in the team that brings the best out of each player which benefits everyone.

The Flying Fijians have a rest day and will resume training tomorrow.
