Known as ‘The King of Sevens’ for his stunning contribution to the shortened format of the game as a player and coach.

Able to turn a game on its head in the blink of an eye with a swivel of his hips, an untouchable side-step or a wonderfully weighted pass, Serevi was the heartbeat of the Fijian team, scoring 1,310 points on the World Rugby Sevens Series and a record 297 points in Rugby World Cup Sevens tournaments.

A five-time Cup winner at the prestigious Hong Kong Sevens, Serevi steered Fiji to their first world series title in his first year as player-coach in 2005-06. They were also bronze medallists at the 2006 Commonwealth Games.

Serevi also played 38 tests for Fiji in 15s, gracing three Rugby World Cups, scoring 221 points in a stop-start career that ran from 1989-2003.

    Rugby has been my true North since the age of 10. It has forged my character and filled my soul. I am humbled and proud to have worn the Fiji jersey for 21 years. The game gave me much and I will spend the rest of my days giving back to the game.
