Filimone Waqabaca’s Rugby Profile F Filimone Waqabaca isn’t a big man physically. In fact, at first glance you wouldn’t pick him out to be a rugby a player – too small and too smart: Okay a Grant Fox p tactical kicking type of first-five in the lower grades ta maybe, but definitely not your big fast flying Fijian. m How wrong covers can be – this trim, fit, head of H Government finances (with sky-high IQ to match), G has a rugby record that would be the envy of many h men in Fiji. m A young Waqabaca, studying at University of the South Pacific in Suva in the late 80s was approached S by rugby scouts from New Zealand – not once, but b twice and the second offer came over a year later! tw As the Chairman takes up the story, “I was studying A at USP at the time and our coach was Vilikesa Mocelutu. We brought the USP team up from the lower grades to the premier competition in Suva Club Rugby. “Two scouts came from Auckland. They came and monitored my performances and then the offer came - it was towards the end of my studies at USP, going through my final exam. It included an offer of employment in Auckland immediately after my graduation. “But I was due to start work at the Reserve Bank of Fiji and the RBF was a premier institution, good pay and all that, so I had to make a tough decision between playing rugby in New Zealand, or pursuing my career at RBF. The FRU Chairman proudly continued, “I played second-five at RKS when we won the Deans in 1985. We played Marist in the final and (current Suva Rugby Union Chairman) Francis Kean was their hooker. So here we are, involved in Rugby administration now. “I also played in the Fiji Secondary Schools Team against an Australian Schoolboys team that toured Fiji in 1985. We played in a curtain raiser match between Fiji and some other team. “In fact ten of our school boys from RKS went into that Fiji Secondary Schools Team and we all made the first XV run on side, Waqabaca said. “It was when I made the Suva team later that the NZ scouts first came to see me. They went away after I chose to work at RBF and then after one year they came back. “Their offer was for me to continue my studies and do my Masters in Auckland and they would also give me an apartment and look for a job for me. This was not professional rugby like what they have now. “At that time, they were offering all that, but not much money. But to me it was about money because I didn’t come from a very well-off background, so I needed money to support my parents and all. “I really weighed up my options - the pros and cons, what if injury strikes me? Waqabaca carried on playing club rugby, but this time for arch schools rival QVSOB because an Uncle was coaching there and pulled him in alongside big names at the time; Ilaitia Savai, Aisake Nadolo and Mosese Taga at prop. “So I was a small guy in the midst of these big players and from there I went on to play for Suva when the scouts came back and asked whether I had changed my mind, to go and play in New Zealand. “But by that time, I was enjoying my career, playing for Suva from 1989 up until 1995 when I had to go to do my Masters in the United Kingdom at Southampton University. “That’s when I stopped playing, as the Masters program was too intensive and I didn’t have much time to play Rugby. Chairman Waqabaca concluded, “I remember going there and they asked me: Where are you from and I said, from Fiji and they said, ah Serevi - yes I said.” continued on page 63

Energy and enthusiasm oozes from the new FRU Board. And that’s great because someone really needs to get to grips with the dire situation in Gordon Street that has been in a steady decline for five years.

RAKAVI matters Suva Rugby Union Lottery Suva Rugby Union will launch their Centennial Battle 100 tickets in early July before the Escott Shield quarterfinals. SRU Chairman Francis Kean revealed that 100 tickets would be for sale with very good prizes. On that same week of the launch, SRU and supporters will march through the city of Suva. “We’ve marched through the city before the commencement of the season and we want to do it again, hopefully on July 8th,” Mr Kean said. This is to mark the final of the Escott Shield Centennial Battle 100. SRU are also in discussion with their transport sponsor Dee Cees who has given a bus to the Union to be painted blue. Chairman Kean added, “It will be called the Suva Rugby Bus and after painting it we will put all the sponsors logo on the bus.” The Capital side has other plans also for the Centennial celebrations in the coming months including community work.

Danniel Whippy new Deputy Chair FRU Board member, Daniel Whippy, has been appointed as the Deputy Chairman of the Board of Directors. Mr Whippy, currently the

Tietjens receives knighthood NEW ZEALAND All Blacks 7s coach Gordon Tietjens and All Blacks legend Bryan Williams have been honoured in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list. Tiejtens was knighted and Williams received the Companion of the Order of New Zealand Merit. Tiejtens said of the award: “I’m still a bit humbled by it, it’s a real shock... I get more satisfaction out of someone making a Super Rugby team and going on to be an All Black than actually winning tournaments.” Tietjens has spent an incredible 19 years as coach of the national side, in which time he’s won four Commonwealth Games gold medals, one Rugby World Cup 7s and 11 world series titles. Williams, who recently stepped down as NZRU president, played 113 times for New Zealand including 38 Tests and went on to enjoy a successful coaching career with Auckland, Manu Samoa and the Hurricanes.

Consistency rules T

poor showing in Wellington under Wardens coach Jim Wainiqolo that saw Fiji drop to the Bowl for the first-time ever. And as is usually the case, off-field management issues played their part in Fiji’s demise. In contrast, New Zealand reached seven of the nine finals, and made at least the semi-finals at every tournament. As coach Gordon Tietjens pointed out, they don’t have to win tournaments to win the Series. Back home in Fiji, it would be nice if the Fiji Rugby Union sorted out their own 7s season. They no longer organise a domestic series, and this year didn’t even bother to hold a National 7s – quite apathetic. And that is probably the key to reviving Fiji’s sagging 7s fortunes. Otherwise, how can we expect the team to improve? — Jeremy Duxbury

Ilai Tinai... came of age this season IRB/MARTIN SERAS LIMA

WO tournament victories (the same as champions New Zealand) stood out as bright spots in a helter-skelter 2012-13 IRB 7s Series for Fiji. Alifereti Dere’s side had no problem rolling over the Kiwis and the Springbok 7s, recording a winning record against both sides for the second year running; but beating so-called lesser teams like Wales, Scotland and the USA became a more arduous task. Indeed, the Aussies, the English, and in London the Kenyans also became stumbling blocks for Fiji in the knock-out stages as Dere’s boys struggled to find consistency and momentum. Despite some memorable performances from Joji Raqamate, Ilai Tinai, Samisoni Viriviri and Jasa Veremalua, this season will more likely be remembered as a mixed one; with the nadir being

Notes from 2012-13 HSBC Series Despite finishing third, Fiji maintained its winning record over IRB 7s Series champions New Zealand and runners-up South Africa, but fell down against Australia and Wales. Overall, Fiji used 33 players, only three more than in the 2011-12 Series despite all the critics. Though the first-ever appearance in the Bowl competition spoiled Fiji’s proud 13-year record, possibly the most disappointing performance was in Dubai where Fiji scored just two tries on Day Two. Fiji played sudden-death games on three occasions, and lost all three. Clean sheets kept: First half: 12 Second half: 12 Full match: 4

2013 IRB JUNIOR WORLD CUP

bine Stade de la Ra e Vannes, Franc

Tough task for Juniors The Junior Flying Fijians are certainly earning their wings in the 2013 IRB Junior World Cup in Vannes, France throughout June. In their first three games, our Flying Fijians have bombed out against the Junior All Blacks in a tough opening game 59 – 6, lost to the Irish Juniors 46 – 3 in their second game and lost their last pool game - a tough encounter against the Junior Australians 46 12. The Aussies just went down to the Kiwis in their first outing and also lost to the Irish, so they really had no choice but to win against Fiji to advance at a higher level.

The Irish came into this Junior World Cup ranked fifth and the Aussies eighth, while Fiji only made it to this tournament by escaping relegation last year, with a last gasp win over Italy 19 – 17, thanks to a try by Seva Galala. With such a tough schedule in mind, Coach, Bill Gadolo, had used last season’s post-tournament analysis to help his young squad prepare for their World Cup games.

JULY 2013

Unfortunately, any chance of an upset win by the Junior Flying Fijians was dashed when Captain Galala and wing Rarasea were red carded and three other players shown the yellow card in a rush of blood by the referee from Scotland, at one stage, reducing Fiji to just 11 players on the field.

Last year in the IRB Junior World Cup in South Africa, the Junior Flying Fijians took themselves and the New Zealanders by surprise, leading at the breather even, but fell away in the second half to eventually lose 12 – 33.

In an interview with Teivovo at their team camp at Uprising Beach Resort in Pacific Harbour the week before they departed for the Junior World Cup in France, Junior Flying Fijians Coach, Bill Gadolo, had highlighted the need for the team to work on their consistency for the full 80 minutes.

The same Junior All Blacks team went on to play South Africa in the final

period when compared to last season. Gadolo said the local boys had a lot of short camps before they trimmed the squad to a more manageable size. “We started out with 130 boys who came to the trials, then we chopped it down to 60”, Gadolo said. They also played a number of warm up matches to gauge the player’s performance. “We played against the Nadroga B team, Nadroga Colts, Northland, Tailevu, Suva Development team, Navy, and our last game was against Police” he said. In all those games, they worked on their combinations plus tested their performance around the tackle area, ball handling skills, breakdown, and set pieces. Those were the areas New Zealand dominated in the last World Cup. Meanwhile, the overseas-based players blended in well with the team,

while two French-based players joined them in France.

things we do. Not only do we have fast runners, but we will do things at a faster pace at the breakdown, penalties and so forth.”

“The boys from Australia and New Zealand have fitted in well. Language was a struggle, but they are doing very well, because we have allocated two local boys to be responsible for them to understand the Fijian language” Gadolo said.

Four players, Esikia Waqaiyavana, Sunia Tamani, Elia Ratucove and 2013 Captain Sevanaia Galala are survivors from the 2012 RWC. With our Pacific Island neighbours and arch rugby rivals, Samoa, ranked just one place above Fiji, it would be a good goal to re-qualify higher than them. The Junior Manu Samoans have also lost all three of their pool games and as a result, will play Fiji on Tuesday 18 June 2013.

The team had a number of teambonding exercisers at the RFMF camp, at the National Gymnasium and the last one at Uprising Beach Resort where they experienced shark feeding, kayaking and swimming. In a touch of irony, Gadolo revealed that their focus against the Kiwis would be to bank on the element of surprise “That is an area we won over New Zealand in the first half last year. We attacked them in areas they never believed we would attack”.

Unfortunately, Captain Galala has since been ruled out of the rest of the tournament, suspended by the IRB judiciary for six weeks for a dangerous tackle in his first game against the Junior ABs. Also in that game, Viliame Rarasea was also controversially red-carded and has been banned from playing for two weeks.

The Coach also said that they have speed in this squad. “We will base our strength on the speed we have, speed in terms of the

iRB Pacific nations cup 2013 iR

Best scrum since 1999

Three strong performances by Inoke Male’s men left them on the verge of winning the iRB Pacific Nations Cup for the first time. Despite an unfriendly schedule that contributed to the loss to Canada, the Flying Fijians have arguably produced their best rugby since 2008... and been their most dominant in the scrum since Big Brad sorted them out for Rugby World Cup in 1999. Yanuyanutawa and the solid figure of Nadroga’s Setefano Somoca to form Fiji’s best front row for several seasons. In the engine room behind them, Api Ratuniyarawa and France-based Wame Lewaravu held it all together; and with the likes of Akapusi Qera, Netani Talei and the ever-improving Api Naikatini in the loose, Fiji has finally found a cohesive unit. As back-up, Male can call upon Masi Matadigo, Malakai Ravulo and possibly Italy-based Samuela Vunisa. He doesn’t have a huge amount of depth after that, but that’s where the Fiji Rugby Union need to step up their elite programme, invest a larger percentage of their income in the players, and get them into professional clubs overseas. The line-outs remained a little patchy, but they weren’t disastrous. Maybe more problematic was a schedule that saw Fiji travel 38 hours across six time zones to face Canada just four days after hosting Japan. There’s really no excuse for that. Nor the route to Japan that required a 10-hour wait in Hong Kong. Unnecessary. Exacerbating the situation was the late ap-

plications for US transit visas for key players Nikola Matawalu, Sireli Bobo and Netani Talei which weakened our side in Edmonton. Matawalu has now shown he really can play anywhere. Waisale Serevi is the only player to have pulled on jerseys 9 thru to 15 for Fiji. But Matawalu could well join him soon – that boy is irrepressible. One question for Male that has yet to be answered is the fly-half role. Should Seremaia Bai take that spot, or will Metuisela Talebula move up from fullback? With Sireli Naqelevuki providing another option as a centre partner for the giant Nemani Nadolo, and Waisea Nayacalevu and Jim Matanavou returning from 7s duties, the coach will face an interesting conundrum in deciding his optimum backline. In November, Fiji travel to Italy, while France have yet to confirm. Then there’s a return match with the Barbarians at Twickenham on 30 November as part of the FRU’s centenary celebrations. The last time Fiji took the Baabaas on, it was the England RFU’s centennial in 1970 when Inoke Tabualevu’s team ran riot in a 29-9 victory. — Jeremy Duxbury

S Teivovo hits the presses, Fiji’s bonuspoint victory over the USA means the winners of the Fiji-Tonga clash in Tokyo will take the 2013 title. And coach Male can thank his Japanese counterpart Eddie Jones for pulling off an important 16-13 win over Canada, a result that gave Fiji a second bite at the cherry. But in fairness, Fiji have been the best team in this season’s tournament, and victory in Tokyo would be a just dessert for an outstanding effort across the park. Whatever Kiwi scrum doctor Alan Muir said to the forwards in May must have worked a treat – the power of Fiji’s 2013 scrum looks to be approaching the level it was back in 1999 when Brad Johnstone instilled his hard-nose discipline in the pack. Japan, Canada and the USA may not be tier one teams, but they usually have a better scrum than Fiji. Not this year. The togetherness of the front five in all three matches has been nothing short of a revelation. In addition to being one of the most versatile hookers around a rugby park, Talemaitoga Tuapati teamed up with the more experienced Jerry

Flying Fijians 33 Classic all blacks 14 F

Fijian strengths emerge The showpiece event of the Fiji Rugby Union’s centenary year (actually, it’s 101 years, but who’s counting?) attracted a near sell-out crowd to Suva’s newly refurbished ANZ Stadium as Inoke Male’s men started to show their true worth.

L

AST November’s tour to Europe proved to be an anticlimax to a year that had started with much promise. Controversial selections were matched by some mediocre performances as the Flying Fijians fell badly to an Ireland XV, 53-0 in Limerick. A few things have happened since then... after seven years of hot air, the FRU’s High Performance Unit finally hired someone to work with the scrums, Nicky Little stepped in to help the backs, and Nemani Nadolo found his true position in the centres. And suddenly Fiji looks to be a team with a future. Sadly, the administrators at the NZRFU bowed to their government’s wishes and stopped the All Blacks coming over for this momentous occasion. But seeing as New Zealand haven’t toured the islands in nearly 30 years, they probably would have said ‘no’ by themselves anyway.

Still, Andy Haden gathered a useful crop of Auld Blacks to take their place and a great time was had by all, especially the massive crowd that cheered on Fiji’s younger legs in the second half as Nadolo, Malakai Ravulo and prop Setefano Somoca dotted down tries to take the game away from the visitors 33-14. With Napolioni “The Beast” Nalaga on one wing, the Billy Whizz feet of Sireli Bobo on the other, and the craftiness of Nikola Matawalu playing somewhere in between, the prospect of seeing the full backline in action when Sireli Naqelevuki and Metuisela Talebula return becomes a scary thought. And then we have the Fiji pack, whose scrummaging has improved almost beyond recognition. At last, the halves get some frontfoot ball to play with. — Jeremy Duxbury

NO MESSIN’

with Simon Raiwalui

FIJI STARS KEEP RISING With the end of another exciting season in France here, there has again been a number of Fijians that have shone brightly at each level. The amount of Fijian talent currently playing in Europe is at an all-time high, especially France where the top three division finals featured Fijians playing or gaining promotion to a higher division.

F Standing 2 metres in height and weighing 120kg, Simon Raiwalui earned 43 Test caps for Fiji from 1997 to 2006. He now manages and coaches in France.

IRST and foremost, my congratulations to Seremaia Bai and Castres Olympique for their fabulous victory in the Top 14 final over Jonny Wilkinson’s Toulon; a fitting reward for a player that has been a loyal servant to both club and country. I remember when Bai first came to play in Europe in 2001 for Crosskeys in Wales when I was at neighbouring club Newport; he was shy, wide-eyed and didn’t have much to say! Bai has not only grown as a player in the past 12 years, he has also grown into a fantastic leader on and off the field. He is an example to those he plays with, but he is also an inspiration to young boys back in Fiji to show how far hard work, determination and a professional attitude can get you in life. In the ProD2, Tikiko Uluiviti’s club Oyonnax won automatic promotion to the Top 14 after a dominant season, securing top spot with five matches still left to play. While Dominiko Waqaniburotu and Malakai Bakaniceva helped Brive gain promotion back to the top flight by winning ProD2 final play-off

against Pau (which meant that Joseva Domolailai and Saula Radidi just missed out). The final congratulations go to former Fiji 7s reps Akuila Nawerecagi of Bourg-en-Bresse and Randall Kamea of Bourgoin who both won promotion to the ProD2 from Federale 1 (I expect the Teivovo editor is also pleased).

Tough times

Special mention must go to Bourgoin, who have endured a horrendous few years financially but have managed to maintain their spirit and focus to win promotion. I think Fed1 must be the hardest competition in world rugby to gain promotion – 40 teams and only two get promoted. While a number of experienced heads showed their quality again this season (Bai, Nalaga, Bobo, Matadigo, Nagusa, Waqaniburotu, Qera etc), the most exciting aspect was the number of talented young Fijians coming through the ranks. Onto the scene this year came a host of new names like Metuisela Talebula, Vereimi Vakatawa, Nikola Matawalu, Noa Nakaitaci, Waisea Nayacalevu and Semesa Rokoduguni. Some of these players have come through the 7s ranks back in Fiji, whereas a growing number are starting to come through the academies system in France after arriving as 16-18 year olds.

Jim Matanavou (solid again for Toulouse, his second in the Top 14) 22. Saula Radidi (star centre, great season at Pau) 23. Semesa Rokoduguni (new boy on the English scene, watch this space) 24. Seremaia Burotu (now settled at Biarritz, making the No.12 position his own) (Noa Nakaitaci & Vereimi Vakatawa were not considered as they have chosen to play for France)

48

JULY 2013


The Professionals Nakaitaci and Vakatawa are just a couple to mention, and you will start to see more in the years ahead as clubs like Clermont take players each season via their academy in Sigatoka.

Tough choices

Also of note has been the decision of a few of these younger players to choose to play for their adopted countries instead of returning to play for Fiji. While not ideal for Fiji rugby, until there is a better structure put in place by the Fiji Rugby Union, we will continue to lose talent. I know national coach Inoke Male stated before last November’s European tour that England and France were “vultures”, but we have been losing much more talent to New Zealand and Australia for a much longer period of time. It is all good and well to criticise these countries, but what are we doing to help persuade these players to commit to Fiji? Young players need security and until the FRU finds a way to offer stability and continuity, we will continue to lose talent to other countries. Money isn’t everything, knowing you are part of something that has direction counts a lot towards a player’s decision.

Maleli & Samueli

Before closing, I would like to pay my respects to two brothers that we lost far too young this season – Maleli Kunavore and Samueli Dawai Naulu. Having captained Maleli as a youngster with Fiji, I always had a special place in my heart for him. Each weekend, I would check to see how he had played or if he had scored a try. He was frustrating as a player because he made everything look so easy; he had the ability to break tackles with nonchalant ease and score tries next to every weekend. Taken away from us when he should have been in his prime, Maleli will be sorely missed. Samueli was also a player with huge potential. On arrival in Perpignan back in 2005, he quickly became known as the “Fijian Jonah” and caused havoc against Top 14 defences. However, when still a

relative youth, he was struck down by a horrific knee injury that affected him for the rest of his career. He had captained the Fiji U21 side and played for Fiji A. Had it not been for the injury, I believe he would have gone on to be become one of Fiji’s top players. My sincerest condolences to the families of both Maleli and Samueli; they will be fondly remembered in Fiji and France.

The Professionals

Italian Super 10 Matches and minutes played, plus tries and points scored, by Fijieligible players at Italian Super 10 clubs for the 2012-13 season

Knowing who is where AS well as providing Teivovo readers with an idea of which overseasbased players are performing well, these pages give selectors important data as well, we hope. For instance, someone featuring consistently in the premier division is almost surely a safer bet than a player of the same position playing occasionally in a lower league. Of note this month is the fine form shown by Italy-based No.8 Samuela Vunisa, who played for Fiji in the 2008 Junior RWC. Vunisa scored 12 tries this season for Calvisano after dotting down seven in his first year with the club. However, unlike Manoa Vosawai and Tuta Vodo, who aligned themselves with Italy, Vunisa played for

Fiji A against Tonga A in May 2008 and thus is only eligible for Fiji. That ‘A’ game was organised by the FRU’s High Performance Unit, so the staff there are no doubt aware of Vunisa’s status. At 1m93 and 113kg, the 24-year old Rakiraki lad is at the top of his game and it would be surely worth the selectors taking a closer look. Meanwhile, Isa Nacewa has left Irish province Leinster after five extremely successful years in which he played 120 games, all but six in the starting XV. He scored 391 points, won three Heineken Cups, one Amlin Cup and one Celtic League. He returns to Auckland with his family. Below right: Vunisa v Tonga A in 2008; and left, in Calvisano colours in Italy.

WOMEN’s RUGBY

D-Day for Fijiana

Easy feeling... Elina ‘Shadow’ Ratauluva happily weaves through the China Anhui defence at the Uprising 7s

The Fijiana team needs to finish in the top eight at the Women’s RWC 7s in Moscow to qualify for next season’s IRB Women’s 7s World Series. A year ago, that would have been a realistic possibility, but the off-field events of recent months have just made things so much harder.

O

F the 12 players selected for the final squad, only three – Asinate Savu, Rusila Nagasau and Litia Naiqato – were part of the Asia-Pacific Champions side of 2012 when the Fijiana 7s went undefeated in Pune, India. Missing are several key players who opted to skip the FRU-organised open trials in solidarity with sacked coach Elenoa Kunatuba. Though this squad is probably weaker than had been hoped, the women still have their eyes on a quarter-final berth, which would earn them a spot on the WSW Series. Skipper Pricilla Siata shocked England in Guangzhou when she scored the game’s opening try in the first min-

ute (pictured below). She also scored tries against China and Japan in what was sadly a losing campaign. In Moscow, the task will be that much harder. Fiji face the USA, Spain and Brazil in Pool C, and must win two matches to reach the quarter-finals. Up first for Fiji are an experienced Spanish outfit, who defeated World Cup 7s champions Australia in Holland last month. Then comes world No.4 USA before Fiji take on a Brazilian side that played in all four WSWS events this season. So, the Fijiana will need to dig deep and play out of their skins. Fitness could prove to be a decisive factor. — Jeremy Duxbury
