FORMER national flanker Mosese Volavola will boost the Lautoka rugby team this year.

The Nadroga rep who is now based at the Lautoka Police Station has been named in the Maroons training squad for the Vodafone Cup competition.

Volavola was part of the Fiji 7s team from 2005 to 2008.

The 34-year-old is registered with the Police club in the Lautoka Rugby Union competition.

Lautoka secretary Salesi Vulakoro said 45 players had been named in the training squad.

Vulakoro said the club competition would start this Saturday.

"The players in the training squad will have to play at least one club game to be eligible to represent the union in the Vodafone Cup competition," he said.

"We have a very young squad this year. Majority of the players are below the age of 28 years.

"The under-20 category will be introduced. This will cater for the players who come out of the secondary schools.

"The development team will have the U23 players.

"We have mapped out a long-term plan to build a solid foundation. The focus is on development and that is why many new players have been selected."

The Lautoka team will play a warm-up match against Nadroga on Saturday.

The Maroons will face Namosi in the opening round of the Vodafone Cup on April 5.

In other matches, Nadi will play Tailevu, Nadroga plays Naitasiri, Northland faces Vatukoula, Tavua clashes with Suva while Macuata will battle Ovalau.
