New Vodafone Fiji 7s rep, Alifereti Veitokani is ready to prove his worth in the team in the Dubai 7s tournament next weekend.
The 22 year old playmaker was a late inclusion into the side after Emori Waqa was dropped from the squad.
Veitokani says although he has been playing 15’s rugby throughout the year, he is ready to contest the pivot’s position against the likes of experiences trio, Vatemo Ravouvou, Emosi Mulevoro and Osea Kolinisau.
-“It’s very tough and I’ll just try my best to be the best playmaker in the Fiji squad.”_
The Fiji 7s side will depart for Abu Dhabi tomorrow and will hold scrimmages sessions with the USA Eagles side next week.
Fiji will take on Canada in its opening game in the Dubai 7s at 6pm next Friday and you can watch the tournament live on FBC TV
