The 23-year-old Fijian centre breaking tackles for fun
Some players may not be the biggest, but they just have the knack of being able to wriggle and break through tackles. Fijian Drua’s Kalaveti Ravouvou is one of those.
The 23-year-old inside centre caught the eye with his performance at the weekend against fellow Super Rugby Pacific newcomers Moana Pasifika. Ravouvou was electric in his side’s 34-19 win, and some of his highlights have been shared online by rugby.com.au.
Weighing in at 94kg, the Fijian is not exactly the biggest centre out there, but he just has that ability to beat the first man regardless of what position he finds himself in. His metres were invaluable against Moana Pasifika, where he also registered at assist.
The win also consigned Moana Pasifika to the foot of the Super Rugby table, where they will likely finish at the end of the season.
“Today was a special day, a historic day Pacific Island people, for Polynesian people,” Moana Pasifika captain Sekope Kepu told Stan Sport.
“Obviously it’s a disappointing result for us.
“A couple of the early tries, the bounce of the ball can be quite cruel sometimes, but that’s Fijian style rugby, pouncing on every opportunity you get.”
