O’Shaughnessy shines in prestigious Fiji tournament
Padraic O’Shaughnessy seized his once in a lifetime opportunity to play in Coral Coast Sevens Tournament in Fiji in January.
The former Bermuda under-17 and under-19 player recently returned from a three-month volunteer trip to the South Pacific island, where he competed in Fiji’s premier sevens tournament. O’Shaughnessy’s exciting opportunity was facilitated by Waisale Serevi, the Fiji sevens legend and Bermuda sevens coach.
The 18-year-old forward, who plays locally for Teachers, was part of the King’s Sevens Select under 19 squad at the 24-team tournament. He helped them win pool B on goals difference after a 12-7 win over Dratabu, a 12-12 tie against Fiji Rugby Academy, and a 29-5 victory over Skylink Natabua Beez.
In the quarter-finals, Kings beat Rugby Academy Fiji, scoring in the second period of extra time to advance to a televisedsemi-final, where they lost to 24-15 to Wesley College Fijans.
During his trip O’Shaughnessy also joined Serevi for some lung-busting workouts on the famed Sigatoka Sand Dunes with Serevi.
