Nainima leads Nadi

Maciu Malo
Friday, January 24, 2014

NATIONAL beach volleyball rep Eroni Nainima will lead Nadi's campaign in next week's Western Rally competition in a bid to secure a place in the Vanua Challenge scheduled for later this month in Suva.

Nainima will spearhead a new-look Nadi team in an effort to stamp their mark on this year's rally.

Team official Anasa Qio said Nainima's experience and skills would boost the morale of the players.

He said the side would be playing without the services of national volleyball rep Jo Draunibaka, but he had faith the selected players would live up to expectations.

"There are no big names in our team except for Nainima but we are confident of a good finish at the Western Rally," said Qio.

"We will be fielding a very young and talented team.

"Our team managed to reach the quarter-final last year and our aim is to improve our standing this year.

"Most importantly, we want to play well to secure a spot for the Vanua Challenge to be held in Suva."

The West will be represented by 16 teams, eight teams for the men and eight in the women's category.

Qio said players who missed out on training would be omitted from the Nadi squad.

"Players have been warned that we will select only those present at training," he said.
