The late great Ratu Seru Rabeni first appeared for Fiji at the 1998 Dubai Sevens Tournament. He would progress to the Fiji National 15’s side in May 2000 making his debut against Japan.

Over the next decade Seru went on to become one of the best and most respected centres in the Rugby World, often nailing attackers and putting fear into his opposition. His top grade club career started in New Zealand in 2003 for Super Rugby Franchise Otago Highlanders via the Otago NPC side.

His best club years came in Premiership Rugby for English powerhouse Leicester, where he built his reputation as a damaging runner and shut-down defender, earning the nickname Rambo.

Rabeni represented the first Pacific Islands combined side in 2004, then again in 2006 and 2008. He represented the Flying Fijians at the 2003 Rugby World Cup and at the 2007 tournament, he cemented his spot in Fiji Rugby folklore with his star performances which includes injuring two Wallabies with his brutal defense and ultimately helping Fiji reach the Quarter Final stages.

Sadly, Rabeni passed away in 2016 at the age of 37. His death sending shock waves throughout the rugby world but is and always will be remembered as a loving father, teacher, aid worker and rugby legend in his homeland and abroad.
