Cavubati ready for action

Tevita Cavubati admits he can’t wait to get started for Warriors in the Aviva Premiership after arriving at Sixways off the back of a positive World Cup campaign with Fiji.

The 28-year-old lock joins after a short stint with Ospreys last year having previously plied his trade with Tasman Makos in New Zealand.

He said: “I want to play the best rugby at the highest level. I’ve always wanted to play in the Premiership and I‘m really excited to help Warriors.

“Playing in the Guinness PRO 12 last year was a pretty good experience but I saw the Warriors boys and how they play and thought it would be a great challenge to play in the Premiership.”

Cavubati played a starring role in Fiji’s World Cup efforts and scored his second international try against Uruguay in their final Pool game.

But despite finishing fourth in the ‘Pool of Death’ the forward believes he is better for the experience.

He added: “It was one of the highlights of my career playing in the World Cup and I learnt a lot.

“It was great being part of a good Fiji side. It was a really entertaining and an enjoyable experience.”

The Fijians captivated public imagination with their team spirit and singing during the World Cup and Cavubati hopes he can bring some of that culture into the Warriors dressing room.

He continued: “Singing is really good for team-bonding and I’m willing to teach the guys!

“I’ve got a few songs in mind so I could introduce them to the boys!”
