City Swans soar, maintains top spot

CITY Swans continue to soar in the AFL Fiji weekly club competition.

After the round four games held yesterday at Albert Park ground three, the Suva club gained maximum points to maintain its lead in the competition.

The other teams that are competing include Raiwaqa Bulldogs, Suva Lions and Nausori Cats.

Weekly competition co-ordinator and AFL Fiji official Robert Wolfgramm was pleased with the attendance. He said with the International Cup to be played this year in August, interest had increased among locals who were trying to make the national team for the tournament.

Fiji is the defending champions of the International Cup division two in the men's grade.

Wolfgramm said they would be fielding a women's team this year.

"The interest also increased after we got the grant from the Australian High Commission last year," Wolfgramm said.

"We have seen a big influx of juniors in footy through that grant and have covered about 6000 kids through our program."
