Habosi is a tough opponent: Nawaqanitawase

Waratahs and Australia A winger Mark Nawaqanitawase says Vinaya Habosi is hard to play against and deserved to be selected in the Vodafone Flying Fijians squad for the Pacific Nations Cup.
 
Playing opposite him during their Super Rugby Pacific Waratahs vs Swire Shipping Fijian Drua clash, Waqanitawase said it was a different feeling from the holiday they enjoyed together in December. 
 
"He spent Christmas at my house when they were in Sydney, and he has had a really good year,'' Nawaqanitawase said.
 
"It is good to see him in the Fijian team and getting an opportunity and I hope I get to play him next week so I can get one back."
 
The 21-year-old who is originally from Nalebaleba Village in Nadroga/Navosa is no stranger to Fiji but hasn't been back in six years.
 
"I was last here six years ago but before that I always came for Christmas and New Years.
 
"I'd go to the village, as well as Vanua Balavu in Lau where mum remarried too."
 
The flyer added he is keen on putting on a great performance in the Pacific Nations Cup and is banking on extended family in Fiji to come watch him play.
