THE Islands Electric Lautoka Crushers have launched a recruitment drive to rope in players for the 2014 season.

The rugby league club will stage a trial on January 25 at the Fiji National University ground which will serve as the initial selection process.

Crushers manager Mesake Navugona said the trial was open to all players wishing to represent club.

"Previously we used to only get players from the Natabua area," the dual international said.

"But now we have opened up the selection process. Players from the other districts can also participate in the trials if they want to join the club. We will be targeting the younger players.

"The aim is to break these players at the premier level early so they can gain experience."

Navugona represented Fiji in both the union and league codes.

Tikiko Inoke is most likely to captain the Crushers this season. Experienced players Tom Hini and Simeli Ravula will be part of the squad.

Fiji National Rugby League's new season is likely to kick off in April.
