Aussie club recruits Fijian

Maciu Malo
Thursday, February 20, 2014

NABUA 7s halfback Apenisa Cokanasiga has been recruited by the Wareba Rugby League team in North Queensland, Australia.

The Fiji Resident rugby league rep who is on a month-long tour in Australia with the Nabua 7s team caught the attention of rugby union and league scouts in Australia.

Nabua 7s manager Solo Ravono said Cokanasiga was a standout performer during their past two tournaments and would be a force to be reckoned with for his new team.

He said the Topline Rugby league rugby league dummy half would join his new club after this weekend's Kiama 7s.

"Assisting our players to secure overseas rugby contracts is one of the objectives of this tour and we are grateful that Cokanasiga has secured a contract," said Ravono.

"Cokanasiga has set the benchmark for this team and I am confident more players are likely to be signed up after this weekend's 7s competition.

"Another player that is making his mark is AOG under-18 winger Ifereimi Kaukirewa who scored nine tries in only four games last weekend."

Meanwhile, Ravono said Brenan Lacey and Tongan native Sione Moala of the Woywoy rugby team had been recruited to play for Nabua this weekend after injuries to some of the players.

The Maroons will be joined by fellow Fijian teams Yamacia and Red Rock for this competition.
