THE national under-15 Aussie Football Rules side finished the Lightening Carnival of the U15 Oceania Cup Championship unbeaten yesterday.
Fiji Tribe recorded victories over the Solomon Islands, Tonga, Nauru and Vanuatu in the round-robin games and then went on to beat Nauru 21-6 in the final at Suva's Albert Park.
The actual competition of the annual event, which is in its fourth year, begins today.
AFL Fiji chairman Robert Wolfgramm said the carnival was used to tune up players for the actual competition.
He said Fiji did extremely well and would need to continue their winning run in the tournament.
Meanwhile, AFL community engagement and talent manager, Chris Johnson said he was impressed with the standard of competition shown by the young players.
Johnson, well known in the AFL circle for playing 264 games for Fitzroy and the Brisbane Lions, is the coach of the Flying Boomerangs.
He said more competition and development work would produce stars of the game from the Pacific.
"There is a long way to go but there are a few kids who are having a go at becoming the best in the Pacific," Johnson said.
"With a bit more competition on a regular basis and some more guidance and development work, they should be doing fine," he said.
Games today kick off at 10am.
