Seahawks wants to farewell coach with a win

MARIST Seahawks captain Ana Maria Roqica believes winning the women's title at the Fiji Bitter Marist 7s will be a perfect way to farewell their coach Elenoa Kunatuba.

The former national women's team coach has signed a contract with the Papua New Guinea Rugby Union as their national women's coach.

Roqica said they're aiming to win back the Marist 7s title that they lost to the Fijiana side last year.

"We were champions of the Marist 7s three in a row before we lost it to the Fijiana," the national rep said.

"This year, the Fijiana team is not competing, so we have a very good chance of winning it back and that is our target for the tournament."

She said with the help of her fellow national reps Rusila Tamoi, Lavenia Tinai, Roela Radiniavuni, Josivini Gusuivalu, Mereoni Yabakidrau and Vini Raiwai, the title could be won.

"The Fijiana reps are playing for their respective clubs and the ones who are in the Seahawks side are focused on winning the title.

"It would be a really good way to farewell Elenoa and she would also like to go out on a high note."

The Seahawks are pooled with New Caledonia, Central Chiefs and Nadi Ranadi for the two-day event at the ANZ National Stadium in Suva.

"We are not underestimating any team in our pool.

"The Chiefs have some Fijiana reps too and then there is the New Caledonia side whom we saw playing at the Coral Coast 7s last year.

"They are equally good in attack and defence and I am sure we will have a good game."
