Nadi school in two finals

Vodafone Fiji
Friday, April 11, 2014

RATU Navula Secondary School from Nadi will be fielding two teams in the Vodafone Fiji Secondary Schools Rugby League finals at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka tomorrow.

Ratu Navula will play Nasinu Secondary School in both the under-15 and under-17 finals.

Ratu Navula U17 coach Josaia Kuruduadua said they had worked hard from the start and had set a platform for their fitness and endurance so they can reach this level.

Kuruduadua said they had also learnt from their mistakes from previous matches and this had helped them improve their performance.

"It will be a proud moment for the school and myself as a coach to win the National title," Kuruduadua said.

"We still lack the facilities and we need more coaching clinics but we use our experience as teachers to train our students.

"We require better coaching methods to help us further lift the performance of our players in the future.

"But we are really thankful to FNRL for their development initiatives and Vodafone for sponsoring rugby league from the grassroots level," Kuruduadua said.

Ratu Navula U15 coach Sepesa Toni said they had new team this year with only a few players that participated in the competition last year.

"It's a challenge as most of these students come from different schools," he said.

"My proud moment will be seeing my team win and the initiatives from FNRL and Vodafone will surely help this competitions grow as we groom our boys to become future warriors in rugby league," Toni said.
