Rasta Rasivhenge On The Move



Rasta Rasivhenge On The MoveHeading to Rugby Town Fiji

“Rasta from Ra” is flying home to Sigatoka!

Popular international whistle-man, Rasta Rasivhenge is on his way to Fiji for the 12th McDonald’s Fiji’s Coral Coast 7s kicking off on Thursday 18 January 2024 at Lawaqa Park, Sigatoka – thanks to support from Tourism Fiji.

Rasivhenge has been a popular and leading match official on the World Rugby HSBC 7s Series since 2010, also taking charge of top XVs games in the Currie Cup, Vodacom Cup and Varsity Cup in South Africa.

The 36-year-old briefly left South Africa for Australia in 2014, but returned in 2015 to become the youngest referee to take charge of a Currie Cup final that year.

Since then, Rasta has refereed in Super Rugby, Test rugby, the Top 14, PRO14 and the Vodacom United Rugby Championship.

Rasta Rasivhenge’s most notable achievement was refereeing at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, where he was appointed to referee the first ever Men’s Gold Medal final between England and Fiji, famously won by Fiji 41-7.

While Rasta will not be taking up his whistle at the McDonald’s Fiji’s Coral Coast 7s, he will be playing a key role as an Ambassador for the tournament, as well as making a stand for women’s rights in Fiji and around the world!

Rasta’s golden voice and key refereeing insights will also be heard in support of the commentary team throughout the tournament.
