RUGBY 7s new find Napolioni Ratu is the player to watch for the Fiji Airways national 7s team during the upcoming Oceania 7s tournament this weekend.

The utility backline player caught the attention of Fiji 7s head coach Gareth Baber while playing for the Wadigi 7s team in the local competition.

Ratu who plays equally well at any backline position is armed with great footwork, vision for the game, eye for the gaps and speed to burn and outpace his opponents.

He is rock solid in defence and could be one of Fiji’s key weapons this weekend.

Ratu has been used as an understudy for Jerry Tuwai after the injury to Amenoni Nasilasila for the two-day tournament.
