Tabua is helping the "dark horse" of Pacific rugby, the Solomon Islands, to reach its full potential.
The iconic rugby song "World in Union" could well have been written about Ilivasi Tabua.
The Fijian-born Australian rugby international is in Vanuatu helping the Solomon Islands to victory over Niue.
"Rugby has always been a part of me," he says.
"Not only have I seen the world, but it has given me a lot and I want to give back."
