Vatukoula adopts new training plan

THE Vatukoula rugby team has adopted a rigid strength and conditioning program to become one of the fittest teams in the Skipper Cup this year.

The Senirusi Seruvakula-coached team showed its prowess by denying Tavua a chance to cross the tryline at Garvey Park last Saturday.

Vatukoula won the local derby 16-0.

Seruvakula said they still had some areas to work on.

He said they wanted to display free-flowing rugby throughout the season.

"We have to work on our lineouts because we need clean ball from that," Seruvakula said.

"We cannot give penalties in our red zone. We don't have a powerful forward pack but I can say that we are one of the fittest teams.

"We love to play open rugby and that is what we will do all the season. We love to enjoy our rugby by letting the ball flow.

"When we are in the green zone then we have to be patient with the ball so that we can capitalise and score tries."

The Skipper Cup competition will take a break this week to allow for the Fiji Rugby Union annual general meeting to be held.
