U19 sets Australia tour goal

VODAFONE Fiji under-19 rugby league coach Meli Baledrokadroka has a goal to achieve with his side when they tour Australia later this week.

While Baledrokadroka says it's a privilege to coach the best rugby league players at secondary school level, he felt there's a mission needed to be accomplished when the side leave Nadi Airport.

He said it would be a huge challenge to put together a formidable combination.

Not only Baledrokadroka wants to win the tour, he wanted players to impress overseas scouts to establish a future playing career.

"My task is to put the players together, enhance their skills, make them play together as a unit so they can get noticed by scouts during the tour," he said.

"I am trying to put the talents together to have a team that can be competitive when they play the Academy Selection side."

The junior Bati side will play the Academy Selection side in the curtain-raiser for the Vodafone Fiji Bati match against Toa Samoa on Saturday.

The schoolteacher pleaded the nation to rally behind his young troops during the tour.
