Vodafone Fiji rugby Under 20 skipper Akuila Tabualevu Junior will have the additional role of kicker during the Junior World Championships in New Zealand next month.
Coach Salimoni Ravouvou says the former Marist Brothers High School student has shown great qualities to warrant his selection as captain as well as the kicking duties.
“Yes Akuila was in the under 20s last year. It’s not new to him. He shows the capabilities that are above his age, his strong and a communicator with the boys.”
Ravouvou adds Australia-based playmaker Elia Murasia has been named as back-up for the kicking role.
The national under 20 side will depart for New Zealand on May 29th.
Fiji takes on Wales in its opening game on June 2nd.
