Volavola enjoying learning curve
September 25, 2015 4:58 am
Vodafone Flying Fijians fly half, Ben Volavola says he is learning more each day playing in the Rugby World Cup and despite setbacks; his aim is to become better in each game.
The former Australia Under-20 rep scored a try in Fiji’s 28-13 loss to the Wallabies and knows expectations are high for him to maintain a consistent performance.
“It was sweet scoring a try although we wanted to win the match, I am very proud of that moment. I think I just have to concentrate on myself. People have their own opinions and they are entitled to their own opinions. I wasn’t quite happy with my game against England and just had to do my homework and improve on that. Although we couldn’t beat Australia, I felt I improved a bit more.”
Volavola’s performance has justified coach, John McKee’s decision to name him in the starting line-up ahead of the experienced Josh Matavesi.
Fiji’s next match in against Wales at 3.45am on Friday week.
In the lone match tomorrow, Argentina plays Georgia at 3.45am.
You can watch the entire tournament live on FBC TV and catch live commentaries of Fiji’s matches on Bula FM and Radio Fiji One.
