Start Living Your Dreams In Rugby
Emosi Narube’s grandfathers played rugby and it didn’t take him long to follow in the footsteps of his rugby heroes. Narube, now 18, of Navut, Wai and Nadroga started his career in the Malokaci under 9 team while still a pupil at Wai District Primary School. In Queen Victoria Secondary school he was selected captain of the school team. Now he is captain of the Fiji national under 18 team. Narube is from a family of four children, born just a few seconds ahead of his twin brother. He is delighted that his twin is also a rising rugby star and had taken his place as captain in the school team. “We are grateful for the talent that God has given us both and I know it would not be the same if I succeeded and my brother did not make it,” he said. Narube has so far been selected to travel out of the country twice to represent Fiji with his sporting talent. ”Our school team went on tour to Japan at the beginning of this year and that was a really great experience. The second time to leave the country is to Australia and it feels very
good,” Narube said. Even though still young and currently living out his dream of representing Fiji overseas, Narube has thought of his future. He said he will not only focus in rugby but balance it with studies. He hopes to further his education at university, majoring in Management while also developing his rugby talent so that one day he might even wear the Flying Fijian jersey. Narube wishes his team all the best and said they would do their best when they are in Australia to make the people of Fiji happy.
