Vatukoula aims for top four spot in provincial rugby

Maciu Malo
Sunday, February 16, 2014

VATUKOULA aims to secure a top four spot in this year's Vodafone Cup provincial competition to kick off in April.

The Senirusi Seruvakula-coached side which surprised rugby giants in last year's competition has made its intention clear to other provincial teams.

Team official Lemeki Rasiga said the side had been consistent since joining the major unions in 2011.

"Last year we achieved our goal to be in the top eight and the target for this year is to improve from where we have left off last year," he said.

"Our goal is to be in the top four and the boys have been urged to be committed towards our goal.

"All players from last year will be part of this year's campaign with the inclusion of junior players within the surrounding area."

Rasiga said the side aimed to introduce some of their players to the national training squad.

"One of our players Matai Ucutabua is now part of the Fiji Warriors team.

"We also have some talented players in the side who have the ability to be in the national training squad," he said.
