THE use of discipline and respect on the rugby field has ensured the Wailevu rugby team finish as one of the top clubs in the Macuata rugby competition.

Wailevu coach Isoa Rokobici said the boys had unity which had also strengthened their teamwork.

"We only have one voice to hear and obey and we have also learned to respect one another on and off the field," he said.

"The rugby season this year has been good for us and we have been undefeated.

"The support from the villagers has also been great and without them we wouldn't have come this far. The commitment and dedication from the boys has been good and continues to get better."

Rokobici said despite the work schedules of his team members, the boys had found the time for training.

"It's the commitment and I am glad, as a coach, that the boys have come together in one to play for the village and not only play but make a difference," he said.

"We have seen some good rugby players in our team and they have the talent and skills that can take them up to national level."

Last week villagers of Wailevu organised a break-up party for the team to thank them for their superb performance.
