Additional information

THAT'S MY BOY
His mother, Asinate, left her partner in Australia and took RAVOUVOU back to Fiji when he was only five. They went through some hard times together and raising him single-handedly wasn't easy, but he promised his mother he would become a rugby star and change their lives. "We cried and laughed together to give him the desire of his heart, that's representing the country in rugby," said Asinate. She broke into tears when he was first selected for Fiji's sevens team. "His childhood experience taught him to be responsible. He is a good listener which enabled him to fulfil his rugby dream." After he was selected to represent Fiji in 2014, he extended his mother's home in Nadi, Fiji. (fijitimes.com, 15 Dec 2014)
