KAVEKINI Tabu, the younger brother of Isoa Tabu will join his elder sibling and pair for Fiji 7s at the Octoberfest rugby 7s tournament in Germany later this month.

Kavekeni’s inclusion means three Tabu brothers which includes Sevuloni Tabu Mocenacagi, wuill represent the national team in Germany.

Coach Gareth Baber said the Tabu brothers proved themselves in local rugby competitions and eligible for selection into the national squad.

“I’ve known Sevu for a while and Isoa playing in the Yamacia and again Kave who plays for the Yamacia as well and again they’re robust individuals, no nonsense when they come in the field and they got great work ethics as well,” said Baber.

“I hope they don’t see themselves only as a group of brothers but they are actually part of a team who has the ability to make the final cut to the World Sevens Series.

Meanwhile, the Fiji Airways Fijian 7s leave for Germany this Sunday September 15.

The tournament will be played on the 22nd and 23rd of this month.
