The Fijian born speedster debuted for the All Blacks Sevens in 2011 and his quick turn of pace has been a huge bonus for the team in 2013. Injury has limited his appearances, but his recall to the side for the London Sevens allowed him to cap off the season in fine style. He’s another of Titch’s team that boasts valuable skills in both forms of the game, playing provincial rugby for North Harbour and a season for Super Rugby side the Blues.
