Viria aims high

THE village rugby club of Viria in Naitaisiri has set bold plans for their players.

The club was formed just this year to compete in the Naitasiri minor union — the Naitasiri North Bulls club competition. And they have set their sights on getting some of their players to don the national jumper in the future.

Viria Blues manager Filipe Vulaono said no player from their village had ever represented the nation and it was time someone did.

"Everyone in the village is now focused to getting our players into rugby and away from crime and drugs," he said.

"Their main focus is to get some or at least one player recognised at national level and, hopefully, wear the Fiji jersey one day."

Vulaono has called on national selectors to attend their weekly competition at the Naluwai grounds in Naitasiri to witness the team in action.

"The team management staff did their research on how to mould professional players.

"And so we took the team into camp for five weeks and set a good diet and training program for them.

"Their fitness is very good and all they need is some quality game time against good opponents."
