Experienced boys back

Maciu Malo
Thursday, July 17, 2014

NEWLY appointed Lautoka rugby coach Sireli Bulicokocoko has opted for experience bringing back former skipper Peniona Ranitu and former Flying Fijians halfback Kelemedi Bola to strengthen his side for the do or die game against Vatukoula on Saturday.

Bulicokocoko who replaced Niko Qoro said the Sugar City boys lacked the experience in their previous matches resulting in their below par performance in the Skipper Tuna competition.

He said the inclusion of Ranitu and Bola would inspire the Maroons to secure a win against Miners.

"This is a must win game for Lautoka," said Bulicokocoko.

"It will be a huge test for me as a coach to guide the boys against in the in-form Vatukoula side.

"I have recalled few senior players that have been left out of the squad to prepare for this weekend's encounter."

He said the side desperately needed a win to improve its standing on the points table.

Bulicokocoko said the onus was on the players to deliver the goods for the people of Lautoka.

"We have to win this game and I have faith in the boys."

The game will be played at Theodore Park in Vatukoula.
