Knights eye Top 8

THE Davuilevu Knights rugby club is confident of playing in the Top 8 competition in the Vodafone Cup next season.

The side was placed as the top premier grade team in the competition last season and are targeting a similar finish this season.

And their chances were boosted when Puma stepped in to sponsor the club's kit for the season.

Team manager Adriu Nabose said Puma franchise retailer in Fiji, Sportsworld, had seen the level of increase in awareness of the game in Fiji and that's why they took the initiative to sponsor their club.

"The support from Puma will motivate the boys and boost our chances for a top place finish in the premier competition," he said.

"The initial sponsorship is for two years and will be extended if our performance is really good and so we are asking our players to give it their all on the field in every game they play."

The club is also in a partnership with its brother club from Australia, the Newcastle Knights that competes in the National Rugby League (NRL) competition.

"The Knights from Australia send us kits for our teams in the other grades of the Vodafone Cup competition.

"They have been supporting us for the past five years and we are trying to negotiate for them to send some coaches or players over to conduct clinics here in Davuilevu."

Meanwhile, the Knights won their first match yesterday 28-0 against the Nausori Cowboys at the Suva Grammar School grounds.
