Career[edit]

He got his first cap for Fiji on 26 May 2007 in a 30–15 win over Japan.

Fiji lost that quarter final to eventual winners South Africa despite drawing 20-all for a period in the 2nd half. He had 7 caps by the end of the competition. His mother is Rotuman from Noa'tau, Rotuma. Before his selection into the 2007 squad he had only played third division rugby in the NPC in New Zealand.
