September 10, 2015 12:59 am
Vodafone Flying Fijians forward, Peceli Yato has been tagged a player to watch out for in the Rugby World Cup, which gets underway next week.
The 22 year old, has been selected by rugby website, PlanetRugby.com as one of the emerging stars in world rugby.
The Nadroga back-rower scored seven tries for French club, Clermont in the Top14 competition last year before earning his international debut against Samoa in the Pacific Nations Cup.
Although Yato is yet to be a guaranteed starter in the forward pack with the likes of veterans, Akapusi Qera, Sakiusa Matadigo, Netani Talei and Malakai Ravulo to contend with, Planetrugby is tipping the youngster to make a cameo appearance in England and light up the tournament with his size, speed and athleticism.
Fiji will meet England in the World Cup opening match next Saturday at 7am and you can watch it live on FBC TV.
