Vodafone Fiji 7s block busting wing Savenaca Rawaca

Vodafone Fiji 7s block busting wing Savenaca Rawaca will play for Fiji until the 2016 Rio Olympics and has turned down five offers from renowned overseas clubs.

Rawaca told Fijivillage today that he has promised his parents that he will represent Fiji until the Olympics and wait for any offers from overseas clubs after the Rio Games.

The 23-year-old turned down the offers from top French clubs Toulouse and Clermont.

He also did not make any efforts to complete his paper work for the Paramatta Eels and turned down an offer from Scotland’s top club, the Glasgow Warriors.

Rawaca says he also spoke to national sevens coach Ben Ryan about his decision before the 2014/2015 World Sevens Series started in Gold Coast last year.

Rawaca who comes from Navatu village, Kubulau in Bua shared the importance of his dream after dropping out from school in class eight.

His parents later sent him to bible school.

He only lasted there for a week and decided to move to his uncle’s place in Nadroga in 2009 to pursue his rugby dream.

Rawaca who finished the last World Sevens Series with 42 tries has also been named in the Vodafone Flying Fijians extended squad for the Rugby World Cup in September.

He says this will also boost his preparations to the Olympics next year.

Meanwhile the Vodafone Fiji 7s team will be camping again later this month to prepare for the Pacific Games which will be held from the 4th to the 18th of next month.
