THE Vatukoula Rugby Union is calling on interested players to join them for the 2014 season.

The goldminers started preparing for the upcoming Vodafone Cup competition two weeks ago.

Coach Senirusi Seruvakula said they had 35 players in the squad from last year training with them.

"We are inviting new players to increase the number of players in the squad.

"We want to encourage competition within the team and for that we need to have a bigger team size," he said.

"Apart from the senior squad, we are also seeking players for development and under-20 squad."

Vatukoula played in the Farebrother Sullivan Trophy Challenge last year after a lapse of 23 years and Seruvakula said the aim was to go a level up this season.

He said they were eyeing the top four finish in the Vodafone Cup competition.

"Obviously the performance last year is enough inspiration for the players to do well in the competition this year.

"We have beaten some top teams like Nadi, Lautoka and Namosi and the players don't lack any confidence going into this season.

"We just hope to gradually improve in the competition and have set the target of finishing in top four this year."
