“During these tough times I improvise my training through farming with my uncle and cousins in the morning and middays before I do my gym sessions.
“I filled up cement on the paint cans and use them as my gym equipment’s for weights and also a piece of block to practice my switch passes and instead of the proper gym equipment’s, I improvise using what is around me to maintain my fitness,” said Naduva.
The 29 year old has captured the attention of many spectators, fans, coaches, rugby analysts and the World Sevens Series commentators have named him the Fijian ‘nitro’ or ‘flash’.
