Internatio­nal Rugby Sevens team calls up Gold Coast rugby star to serve


SURFERS Paradise Dolphins tryscoring ace Indiha Saotui-Huta has left the team to pursue an opportunit­y with the Samoan Internatio­nal Rugby Sevens team.

The Palm Beach Currumbin graduate was selected to represent the island nation in Under-20s rugby union but missed out due to Covid-19.

After 12 months of waiting SaotuiHuta finally received the call he had been waiting for, jetting off for New Zealand for a connecting flight to Apia just in time to escape the latest border lockdown.

He scored 11 tries in 12 appearance­s for Surfers Paradise to leave an indelible mark on the Gold Coast rugby season.
