Mailulu eager to bolster U20 campaign

Union Bordeaux-Bègles and Fijian Under 20 lock forward Petero Mailulu is ready to do his part for Fiji.

One of Fiji’s upcoming stars, the strapping lad from Nayavu Village in Wainibuka would add needed strength to the pack.

“It is a blessing to be part of this team and I am thankful to the selectors for being called up to the squad,” Mailulu said.

The 19 year old attended Marist Brothers High School and Hamilton Boys High School and has also been part of the national Under 16 rugby team before joining Bordeaux academy in France.

Bordeaux has been a great experience and to play with players from around the world, you learn a lot.”

Mailulu is one of a few players in the U20 side that has experience playing proffessional rugby having played against ASM Clermont and Stade Francais this season in the Top 14 last season.

“I am hopeful all that I have learnt will boost my performance if selected for the Oceania Rugby Under 20 Championship.
