B Division Rugby champions Ba, were last week treated to a cruise of the infamous Yasawa group of islands by Awesome Adventures, a leading tourism operator in the country.
Ba who play Macuata in the promotion-relegation decider on Saturday had a break from camp for the cruise, spending one night on the island of Nacula.
The team had a friendly match with the boys from Nacula on Friday afternoon, a game they easily won, and they are confident that Macuata would be going down on their home soil when they battle this weekend.
Ba coached by former Fiji rep Gaberiele Naborisi, is in high spirits after scaling to the top of B division competition this year.
Naborisi (father of former sevens forward Pio Tuwai) says that it is high time Ba returns to the upper echelon of Fiji rugby after an absence of 19 years.
He was thankful to Awesome Adventures, Blue Lagoon Beach Resort and the people of Nacula for facilitating the trip.
Nacula youth president Manasa Takala termed the visit as a morale booster for the youths of Nacula, and a lesson on what can be achieved through hard work, determination and sacrifice.
"Our aim is to mould and develop the character of island youths, and sport is the one area where we have had success" Takala said.
"We saw substantial changes in the boys after their Marist Sevens exposure and we thank Blue Lagoon Beach Resort and Awesome Adventures for footing the $5000 required to take two teams from Nacula to Suva for the tournament.
"Some of our boys have even filtered through to big teams such as Westfield Barbarians after representing Nacula. So, it was timely for a successful team like Ba to visit us and to interact with the boys to ensure this momentum is maintained on Nacula".
After the friendly match at Nacula, the villagers and the team socialised in the evening talanoa session at the village Hall.
The people of Nacula had an opportunity to sit and chat with Naborisi and the boys from Ba.
'It all comes down to discipline" Naborisi said.
"I started with 56 boys and I am now left with the obedient 26 who were willing to put their heart and soul into this Ba team.
" You can't succeed if you are not working together and have the same disciplined mind as a team. It is crucial to the team's success.
" If all goes to plan, Ba will join the big boys of rugby this weekend after a lapse of 19 years," Naborisi said.
