Though he has only participated in 16 IRB Sevens tournaments, Virimi’s impact has been undeniable, with 2016 standing out in particular after he returned from participating with the France rugby union side in the 6 Nations tournament. Though Fijian-born and mentored, Virimi has adopted France as his own, playing rugby union for Racing Metro 92 from 2010-2014.
