Speedster Bula out to prove his worth

By Sunil Sharma

His selection as a last minute replacement for injured Alipate Ratini has given Suva speedster Maleli Bula the biggest break of his rugby career.

And the Police club utility promises to give nothing less than his very best for Fiji in the second leg of the HSBC/IRB World 7s Series in Dubai and Port Elizabeth.

Speaking to FijiLive, Bula said he could not have asked for anything better than his selection into the national team and it was his childhood dream to represent the country in Dubai 7s.

"Dubai 7s has always been my favorite tournament in 7s rugby and this is just a dream come true for me to be selected and I thank coach Dere and the team management for having faith in me."

"I may have been added into the team as a replacement but I surely have a lot to offer and when I take the field in Dubai and South Africa, I will ensure that I give my best for the country and all the wonderful people here," he said.

Bula is one of the seven debutants selected for the second leg and Fiji's last win in Dubai 7s was 13 years ago.

The Dubai 7s will be held on November 30 and December 1 in the United Arab Emirates and the Digicel Fiji 7s team will fly out of the country on Wednesday.
