Nasilasila pleases Gollings – FBC News

Fiji national 7s Head Coach Ben Gollings is pleased with the performance of former Fiji 7s rep Amenoni Nasilasila in the Fun Flavour Super 7s Series today.

Nasilasila along with former 7s rep Nacanieli Labalaba are currently serving time for rape but featured for Wardens today as part of the Fiji Corrections Services Yellow Ribbon Project.

Nasilasila was convicted in 2018 while Labalaba in 2019, but the duo were given a second chance to not let their rugby talents go to waste.
