Team Fiji men’s rugby sev­ens Olympic gold medal­list, Jasa Vere­malua is con­sid­er­ing all of­fers that are com­ing his way.

Speak­ing to SUN­sports yes­ter­day, Vere­malua con­firmed that talks are on­go­ing with the Le­in­ster Rugby Club in Ire­land. He also re­vealed, that rugby league le­gend and for­mer Voda­fone Fi­jian Bati skip­per Petero Civoniceva has of­fered him to join the Fi­jian All Stars team that will be camp­ing in Pa­cific Har­bour and par­tic­i­pat­ing over­seas.

“There are lots of of­fers that have come my way but there hasn’t been any con­fir­ma­tion as yet,” he said.

“But I will see of­fers from other clubs as well. I will wait for their pro­pos­als be­fore I make my de­ci­sion. I’m also wait­ing for Ben Ryan since he is hav­ing talks with his agents.”

On Civoniceva’s of­fer, Vere­malua says, they have asked him to join.

“All I know that it is a lo­cal sort of fran­chise based in Pa­cific Har­bour. All their matches are be­ing played over­seas. Ev­ery week­end you go abroad for your match and then you re­turn home. And to play for them you will be con­tracted.”

WIN­NING RECIPE

Vere­malua spoke at the open­ing of the WESTCOSE 2016 tour­na­ment at Prince Charles Park, Nadi. He chal­lenged the stu­dents not to al­low the cir­cum­stances they are in to stop them from achiev­ing their dreams. “With­out mak­ing your aim you can­not work to­wards your dream. With­out hard work you can­not achieve your dream. You got to work hard in or­der to achieve your dream. You got to lis­ten to your par­ents and teach­ers,” he said. Vere­malua said they worked on a sim­i­lar plat­form in or­der to win the gold medal at the Olympic Games.

“Firstly, our aim (play­ers and man­age­ment) for the past three years was to win the gold medal, so we worked to­wards it. Sec­ondly, we had to make sac­ri­fices, put in a lot of hard work and were com­mit­ted to the task. Third, we had to abide by the in­struc­tions given to us and lastly we seek spir­i­tual guid­ance by putting our faith in God Almighty,” he added.
