Daveua off to Singapore

FIJI Corrections Service's new recruit Raijeli Daveua will be joining Netball Singapore for a month's contract.

The former Fiji under-21 netball skipper is the first netball player to represent the service.

Mostly FCS is represented by rugby players.

During a farewell speech last week at the service's national headquarters, deputy superintendent Kaliopasa Bogiva said Daveua's achievement would go down in the history books.

"So far, we have been producing big names on the rugby field and for the first time ever, you will be representing not only the country but the department as well in the netball arena," said Bogiva.

"We wish you all the best and hope that you will learn as much as you can during your stint in Singapore as well as the years ahead."

Daveua thanked corrections commissioner Lieutenant Colonel Ifereimi Vasu for letting her fulfil her national responsibilities.

"I will do my utmost best because I am not only representing the nation but the department as well," she said in a statement.

Daveua is a key member of the Fiji netball squad as exemplified in her performances in 2012 and 2013 when she was selected for the Oceania team, marking her as the best in the region during the Pacific Netball Series last year.

Daveua flies out of the country today.
