FORMER National netball rep Kelera Tuqovu spearheaded USP Stallions effort in winning the Nadroga/Navosa Provincial Netball tournament at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka on Friday.

The USP Stallions narrowly defeated Highlanders 10-9 in the first semi-final before dethroning Sigatoka in the final 19-13.

Davetalevu led by former Nadroga rep Mereula Lotawa lost a tough battle to Sigatoka 7-8 in the second semi-final.

Newly appointed Nadroga Netball secretary, Asinate Korovulavula said the new committee had identified some untapped talents during the two-day tournament.

'We have spotted many young girls who have the potential and we will try and develop them to represent Nadroga this netball season and hopefully Fiji of course,' said Korovulavula.

Korovulavula who now resides permanently in Nadroga, said it was encouraging to see the enthusiasm shown by players.

'At the moment they have shown quite an interest in netball but we will need to improve on their basic skills,' said the former national netball U21 squad member.
