Wed­nes­day Oc­to­ber 19 will be a day etched in the mem­ory of star Mel­bourne Storm rugby league, Marika Koroi­bete.

Yes­ter­day, the Fi­jian speed­star mar­ried the love of his life, Emma Whippy, at his vil­lage in Naraiyawa, Namosi, be­fore his loved ones and friends.

He said: “We have been plan­ning this for a while now and I am just happy that to­day has fi­nally come. We have been to­gether for a long time and we have a beau­ti­ful son, so this day is re­ally the ic­ing on the cake for us.

“The wed­ding cer­e­mony was re­ally good and I want to thank all the boys and the vil­lagers who helped make to­day a pos­si­bil­ity. We have been work­ing hard for the last cou­ple of days and it couldn’t have hap­pened with­out them.” Their hon­ey­moon plans are now on hold be­cause Koroi­bete only has a few days left be­fore he joins the Aus­tralian Wal­la­bies team for camp and to pre­pare for Grand Slam Tour of Britain and Ire­land next month.

They plan to spend their hon­ey­moon in Hawaii af­ter the tour.
