Marist out to reclaim title

Arin Kumar

THE Marist volleyball side is looking forward to reclaiming the Super Premier title in the Suva Volleyball League competition today.

The side lost the title three weeks ago in a technicality when they fielded an unregistered player in a challenge match they won.

Since then the title has changed hands a few times and Cakau are the current holders in the Digicel-sponsored competition.

Marist team coach Sakiusa Taubale said the team would have to rely on experience because they had not been training together.

"It wouldn't be very hard to win back the title but it would depend on the boys on how they play," he said.

"This is because we have not done any court work or training together and they would just have to rely on their experience."

Taubale said Cakau would be tough as they would want to retain the title.

"We have played against them in the past so we know what to expect.

"But the result of the game tomorrow (today) will depend on how the boys play on the court.

"My advice for them would be to win the first set convincingly and then build on from there to win the remaining two sets if they want to win back the Super Premier title."
