TEIVOVO.COM – TEAM FIJI

Fero Lasagavibau (wing)

Club: Dax (France)
Fiji club: Warwick, Navosa
Height: 1m75 (5'9")
Weight: 76kg
Born: 25 May 1976
Test debut: 1997 vs New Zealand in Albany

23 caps 16 tries 80 pts (34 games 28 tries 140 pts)

First class winger with lightning reactions and quick change of direction – interceptions are his speciality.

Fero has an international scoring record of virtually a try a game having scored on his debut against the All Blacks in 1997. Scored a hat trick of tries against Scotland in 1998

He also played at Hong Kong Sevens in 1999, 2000 and 2001.

He played in three of Fiji's four games during the 1999 Rugby World Cup and had a great Epson Cup Pacific Rim series that year.

He missed several tournaments at the beginning of the inaugural IRB World Sevens Series because of family commitments but was back to reinforce the Fiji side in the Wellington leg, playing a commanding role at half-back.

A thigh injury kept Fero out of the Test side in 2000 during Greg Smith's first season in charge, but he came back for the Rugby World Cup 7s in Argentina in January 2001, then skippered the side to Wellington a fortnight later.

Helped Fiji to the gold medal at the World Games in Akita, Japan, in August 2001, and on his return got a Test recall from Ifereimi Tawake.

Scored Fiji's only try in the big loss to France in November 2001, and after a useful season with Northland in the NPC, earned his Test place back for the UK tour in November 2002.
