The Fiji Rugby Union, Suva Rugby and Navy are mourning the loss of former Flying Fijians.

Suva Rugby Union this morning announced that Alefoso Yalayalatabua had passed away suddenly.

A minute of silence was also observed during the Suva Rugby Union club competition opening at Bidesi Park today.

Yalayalatabua played for the Flying Fijians as a prop and also represented Suva and Navy rugby teams.

Yalayalatabua was first capped for Fiji, on 19 May 2007, aged 30, in a 3-8 loss to Samoa.

He was in the Fiji squad at the 2007 Rugby World Cup finals, playing a single game, in the 12-55 loss to Australia.

He had 10 caps for his national side, without ever scoring.
