It was an emotional moment for the Fiji Airways 7s side when former captain Kalione Nasoko spoke to them for the last time on Tuesday.
Nasoko left for Scotland yesterday to join Viliame Mata at Edinburgh.
Fiji 7s coach Gareth Baber says they will miss Nasoko as he has been with them for the last three seasons.
‘Big shoes to fill Paula’s done a fantastic job since Kali was injured we are very sad to lose Kali we appreciative of the work he’s done as the whole of Fiji what he’s put and sacrifice to get himself there but he has the opportunity now to do something else in his career he was very emotional yesterday when he spoke to us for the last time here, wished us luck and wants us to bring that world series back to Fiji’
Baber is expected to name the national side for London and Paris tournaments later today or tomorrow.
The London 7s will be held from the 25th to the 27th of this month.
