Additional information

GREAT SCOT
Born in Fiji, but qualifies to compete for Scotland through residency, having lived in Scotland since 2008. "I would love to play for Fiji, but Scotland has given me so much and I consider it my second home." (heraldscotland.com, 4 Oct 2013; fijitimes.com, 4 Jun 2017)


ARMY
Joined the British Army in 2008, moving to Scotland for training. "I wasn't too keen on joining the British Army, but reality kicked in when my old man started asking me how was I going to support my girlfriend, who is now my wife, and daughter. My cousin, Jim RAKETEKETE, convinced me that it might not be a bad idea to apply, and I was accepted to join the British Army as an infantryman in March 2008." (fijitimes.com, 4 Jun 2017)
