Volleyball trials for Oceania Championship

A good turnout was recorded at the Fiji Volleyball Federation Western trials in Namaka, Nadi yesterday.

Former reps including Josefa Draunibaka, Finau Waqa, Rebecca Lasaqa and Tomasi Seninawanawa were part of the trials aiming for a spot in the national training squad for the upcoming Oceania Championship.

Fiji Volleyball Federation Western official Dan Vakadranu said players part of their development program also attended the trials.

"One aspect that we witnessed is the interest shown by the development players," Vakadranu said.

"We have set up a different program for them but they showed up for the trials so we included them.

"We had a few former reps who are trying to make it back into the Fiji team. The results of the trials will be assessed by the selectors before the training squad will be named in a fortnight's time."

"The Oceania Championship is supposed to happen in October or November but the host nation is yet to be determined."

Papua New Guinea was initially supposed to host the championship but withdrew.
