RKVT Fijian Flyer Semi Final 2

Semi final 1 is done and dusted and the first four runners in the Gold Medal race are confirmed. Here’s your chance to vote for the final four in the first ever RKVT Fijian Flyer Award.

Lane 1 – Aminiasi Tuimaba (Ba) Sevens

Sevens star “Tornado” Tuimaba finished 4th in the final heat just ahead of Waisake Naholo. The Ba flyer is an outside chance of progressing but two players who beat him in his heat were pooled in the first semi final.

Lane 2 – William Ryder (Bua) Sevens

Finished 3rd in the second heat and is always a threat given his popularity. A bit of a wildcard and could finish as high as second or miss out altogether.

Lane 3 – Alasio Naduva (Cakaudrove) Sevens

Mr Nitro was an outsider in the first heat but finished a close second to Marika Koroibete. Like Ryder is a bit of a wildcard. Very popular with today’s fans and could be anything.

Lane 4 – Rupeni Caucaunibuca (Bua) Rugby Union

Rupeni Caucau polled the most votes of any player and is the favourite to win the title. It will be interesting however to see how many votes he gets in this race against some of today’s most popular players.

Lane 5 – Semi Radradra (Cakaudrove) Rugby Union

Radradra caused the biggest upset in the heats by upstaging speed demon Marika Vunibaka. Can he make it two from two and take out another legend in Caucau?

Lane 6 – Joe Rokocoko (Nadi) Rugby Union

The Nadi Rocketman finished a comfortable second in the second heat behind Joeli Lutumailagi. We expect him to advance to the final but has some new fan favourites in Tuimaba and Naduva to contend with in this one.

Lane 7 – Sireli Bobo (Rakiraki) Rugby Union

The veteran finished third in the closest top 3 finish of the heats. We expect to see Bobo in the final possibly finishing 3rd of 4th in this one.

Lane 8 – Lote Tuqiri (Nadroga-Navosa) Rugby League

Namatakula night train Lote Tuqiri finished only 3 votes ahead of Waqa Blake to clinch the final spot in the 2nd heat. Faces an uphill battle to get a top 4 spot in this race.
