Old Glory Welcomes Back Tevita Naqali!

Old Glory is excited to announce the return of Tevita Naqali to the DC squad for the 2022 Major League Rugby season. During the 2021 MLR season, Tevita appeared in 14 matches, clocking 962 minutes of playing time, punched in two tries, accounted for 124 ball carries over 514, made 107 successful tackles, and arrived at 264 rucks. 


“I’m really excited and privileged to be part of the Old Glory family again next season,” said the utility forward on re-signing with Old Glory. “I can’t wait to train again with the brothers and continue to improve from where we left off last season.”

 

Naqali has played for the Suva Provincial Club for the Suva Rugby Union, the oldest provincial unions in Fiji. In early 2019, Naqali traveled to Spain to play with the Valladolid Rugby Association Club. This Spanish rugby club competes in the División de Honor de Rugby competition, the highest level of Spanish club rugby. The lock recently joined the Fijian Latui, a professional rugby team that plays in the 2019 Global Rapid Rugby Showcase Series. The series features a showcase series of six professional teams in the Asia-Pacific region. 

 

“Tevita is in his 3rd year with the club and very much an integral part of the family,” said Head Coach Andrew Douglas. “It’s great to see him continue on this journey with Old Glory. He’s a hard-working, naturally skilled big man and he’s very well-liked in the club. We’re looking forward to seeing him take his game to a new level in 2022 and continue the entertaining style he plays.”
