THE Saru Dragons rugby league club aims to return to next year's Vodafone Cup competition with an aim to win all grades.
This season, the Kadar Buksh Buses Limited-sponsored side made it to the elimination rounds in all grades and their reserve grade side lost in the final 8-20 to Police Sharks on Saturday.
Coach Tevita Volavola said his club had learnt a lot of lessons from this season and identified a lot of weaknesses.
He said next year's teams would be better prepared compared to this season.
"This season was our build-up and we have used it to test our combination and variations," Volavola said.
"Now we know the areas in which we lack in and the areas our opponents are strong in," he said.
"This season, we saw a lot of new teams come into the competition and we didn't know anything about them but since we have played against then, now we know what they are like."
He said the players in his club had the drive and commitment towards building a champion side but need more work on their basics.
"Our players are confident and determined and our reserve grade side proved this against the Police Sharks because none of our players backed down in the game even though our opponents were bigger and stronger," Volavola said.
"We will go back and continue with the program we have set out for development and we will focus more on getting the basics right."
