Ba targets major union

Maciu Malo
Wednesday, April 30, 2014

THE Ba rugby team is optimistic of a better finish in this year's provincial competition.

The side won the B-division competition last year but fell short of securing a spot in the major union after losing to Macuata in the promotion relegation.

Coach Gabirieli Naborisi is confident of an improved outing this year with the ultimate aim of playing against the top provincial teams next year.

He said he would retain some of his players from last year with the rest to be selected from the club games.

"We did well last year unfortunately we lost to Macuata in the promotion relegation," said Naborisi.

"Our aim this year is improve from where we left off last season.

"The boys have tasted the experience of playing against Macuata and they have learnt their lessons.

"Hopefully this year will be a good year for Ba rugby."

The former national rep said the side had some talent that could be groomed to become future star.

He said Ba had produced some skilful players over the years and was confident of nurturing more young players to become Fiji rugby household names.
