THE Fiji National Rugby League is happy with the progress of the clubs in the respective Vodafone Cup zonal competition.

Competition is played in seven zones around the country.

FNRL development officer Jo Rabele was in the Ra zone over the weekend and he said the way the sport was growing in the northern part of Viti Levu was encouraging.

"The outreach program in Ra and Tavua was very successful and the development of the sport is progressing," he said.

"The teams in the Ra zone competition now have teams in the uder-15 and U18 grades and that is good.

"Tavua also has six clubs and they want to have their own competition from next year."

Meanwhile, Rabele said the Momi Tigers club which competed in the Nadi zone had a sponsor from Australia.

"Their sponsor has given them a vehicle and a truck to help transport the team from Momi to Nadi for the competition. Most of the players in the club are farmers and they can also use the truck to transport their produce to the Nadi market."

Momi leads the Nadi zone, Namuaiwaqa Sea Eagles leads in Ra, Buavou Sharks in Dreketi, Raiwaqa Knights are frontrunners in Nadroga, Tuwalu leads the Navosa zone, Lautoka Crushers leads in Lautoka, City Storm is the top bet in Suva while the Puma Davuilevu Knights leads the Nasinu zone.
