St Peter's to showcase more Namosi rugby talent

THE Saint Peter's Rugby Club from Namosi hopes to unleash more Fiji rep material when it takes part in the Marist 7s tournament in Suva next month.

The Namosi Village club has produced national 15s rugby reps such as Antonio Nariva and Alefoso Yalayalatabua in the past.

And at the 38th Fiji Bitter-sponsored event, the club is optimistic of producing players who could impress national 7s coach Ben Ryan.

Club coach Simione Marika, who recently completed his International Rugby Board Level One Coaching Certificate, said his side would be ready for the huge test at the ANZ Stadium on March 7 and 8, the dates of the tournament.

"We have been training very well," he said.

"We have had players like Antonio Nariva and Alefoso Yalayalatabua who played for our club before making it big in the national team.

"At the Marist tournament, we want to show the public that we still have reps who have the material to become Fiji representatives."

Former Namosi loose forward Farasiko Vecenavuka will lead the side.

"We are here for exposure. All these boys are from the rural area and it will be a huge break for them to play against the other top clubs from around the country.

"We're hoping to give our best shot and show our worth against any team."

Marika also thanked the Namosi Joint Venture for sponsoring the team.

"We want to acknowledge our sponsor, Namosi Joint Venture, for paying our transport and registration fee.

"We plead with our former players and supporters to support the team as we campaign at the Marist 7s next month."
