FORMER Flying Fijians Viliame Satala and Niko Qoro will guide the Lautoka rugby team for another season.

The duo were retained as coaches after the Lautoka Rugby Union executive committee meeting on Wednesday.

Lautoka Rugby Union secretary Salesi Vulakoro said the trainer's position would be advertised.

Vulakoro said they were on a rebuilding phase this year.

"The squad training for the new season has started," he said.

"Vili (Satala) remains the head coach and he will be assisted by Niko. We are looking for a trainer.

"A lot of our senior players have left so we have opened the door for players from other unions to join our squad. Players from Nadi, Nadroga and Ba have shown interest so far.

"A trial will be held probably this month where a 60 member squad will be selected.

"These players will then go through a fitness test. After that the 40 member squad for the 2014 season will be named."

Osea Naiqama has been named as the acting Lautoka Rugby Union chairman.

Lautoka last won the Farebrother Sullivan trophy and the Provincial Championship title back in 2003.
