Just hours before facing Georgia in the fourth day of the World Cup last Saturday, Fiji center Josua Tuisova received terrible news: the death of his seven-year-old son following a long illness. It was his father, Isikeli Ratulevu, who announced this disappearance to him, according to the fijivillage media. Starting against Lelos, the 29-year-old contributed, despite the loss, to his team’s victory (17-12).
He will not attend the funeral
The new Racing 92 player chose to stay in France to defend the colors of his country. He will therefore not be able to be present this Tuesday for his son’s funeral in Votua (Fiji).
On Sunday, the Flying Fijians will face Portugal in the final match of Pool C. They only need one point to qualify for the quarter-finals for the first time since 2007.
