THE Vodafone Fiji Bati has a massive future says interim coach Matthew Adamson after the side’s 26-14 loss to Papua New Guinea in the Pacific Test match on Saturday in Australia.
Adamsom, who was a former Australian rugby league player had shown interest to apply for the Fiji Bati full-time coaching job.
“I am proud of Kevin Naiqama as he has been a wonderful leader and I loved working with him,” Adamson said.
“I also enjoyed working with his brother Wes Naiqama who assisted with the coaching of these young men and wonderful role models for the country and their families.”
Adamson said he was proud of the team’s performance against PNG Kumuls.
“I am very happy with the boys and what they put into this week and the game. It is important that if you make errors and turn the ball over you must defend those sets and in the first half which we did not,” he said.
“In the second half, we stopped their momentum and kept them scoreless. This is why I am very proud of the boys.
“The young players who came into the team where unbelievable and their families should feel very proud of what that did on the field for their country. Fiji Bati has a massive future.”
