TEIVOVO.COM – TEAM FIJI

Inoke Male (No. 8)

Full name:
Inoke Male
Club:
Navy, Suva
Height: 1m90 (6'3")
Weight: 102kg
Born: 2 June 1965

Test debut: 1993 vs Western Samoa
20 caps 1 try 5 pts
(30 games 2 tries 10 pts)

Ageless loose forward who enjoyed his rugby with a smile, Inoke Male first played for Fiji back in 1993 but went to the Middle East for peacekeeping duties shortly afterwards.

On his return in 1995, he signed with Te Kawhata in New Zealand where he stayed for two years.

He returned to the Fiji international scene in 1998, and had a good showing on the UK tour that year.

After missing out on the Epson Cup in 1999, he forced his way into the World Cup squad with a competent performance for the Fiji Warriors against the NZ Maori.

He played against England at Twickenham in the World Cup quarter-final play-off, and has since cemented his place in the team for coach Greg Smith.

After captaining Suva in the Telecom Fiji Cup for two years, he switched to Tailevu after being released by the Navy to play for his village team during the political problems of 2000.

For the 2001 season, he has returned to Suva.

He scored Fiji's winning try in June 2001 when Fiji beat the Samoans in Apia for the first time since 1986.

His brother, Waisiki Masirewa, also played for Fiji and played sevens for New Zealand.
