Fijian Tavite Veredamu has been named in the France rugby 7s team and will make his debut in the Dubai 7s this weekend.
Veredamu left Fiji when he was 18 to join the Legion Rugby team in France.
He says he did not play rugby at all for three years after arriving in France and nine years later he is getting a shot at international sevens.
“I moved to France just to join Legion. I had three years without playing when I mobed to France and I really missed it a lot. Coming from Fiji I have the spirit of sevens.”
Meanwhile, former Fiji Airways Men’s 7s coach Ben Ryan has been called in for French Rugby as a team consultant.
Fiji kicks off the Dubai 7s campaign against Russia on Friday at 7.06pm; they then play Wales at 10.06pm and face Australia on Saturday 4.06am.
The final will be played on Sunday at 4.33am.
You can watch the Dubai 7s live on FBC TV and also catch commentary of Fiji’s games on Radio Fiji One.
