Tuiloma ready for first international duty

July 3, 2017 4:33 am

Twenty-three-year-old Nimilote Tuiloma is excited about his debut match with the AFL Fiji Tribe at the International Cup next month in Australia.

Introduced to the sport last year, Nimilote Tuiloma says this has opened doors for him.

“I only know rugby and I joined the sport last year. I realised the sport is fun and at the same time it allows me to go to places I haven’t been to. The game is different from sevens. You have a lot of kicking and running around.”

Tuiloma says he left rugby last year to concentrate on AFL.

“I like the sport. Rugby and AFL is totally different. When I tried the sports I’ll m addicted to it and I like playing it. A lot of tackling and the good thing there is no over side and you can smash any one you like."

The International Cup will be held from the 5th to the 19th of next month.
