Hekari wants to repeat 2010 finish

Maciu Malo
Sunday, April 06, 2014

HEKARI United is aiming to improve from its last year's Ocenia Champions League campaign and to repeat its 2010 performance in this year's competition.

Team manager Vonnie Eteak said the side had prepared well for this competition and they were eager to stamp their mark.

She said the influence of the three Fijian players Tuimasi Manuca, Pita Bolaitoga and Taniela Waqa would boost the players' morale.

Eteak said these Fijian boys were well familiar with the condition in Fiji and they are expected to provide the much needed thrust in the team.

"We are grateful to have these Fijian boys in the team and I am confident they will deliver the goods expected of them," she said.

"These boys have the experience of playing top level competition and I believe they will be instrumental for the side.

"These Fijian boys have adapted well to the team environment and they have formed good combination with other players in the side."

Eteak said the side would treat all game as the final but had rated their pool game against Vodafone 4R Electrical Ba as a titanic battle.

"All the pool games will be vital but we expect the Ba team to be strong."

"But our first focus is to beat AS Magenta in the pool games.

"We expect tough games as all teams will share a common goal of winning the tournament.
