Tuesday, July 22, 2014

SENITETEVA netball team is confident of beating Sekoula in the Lautoka netball club competition tomorrow.

Fresh from the inter-club championship in Suva, coach Torika Butani believes her side has what it takes to beat Sekoula.

The side defeated Wardens which had the services of national reps Vaiti Waqatabu and Rejieli Daveua in their inter-club pool games.

The team also upset Nasinu' Grasshoppers and Viti Mining to top their pool before being bundled out in the semi-final by CBM.

Butani said the inter-club exposure had lifted the morale and confidence of her girls.

"The inter-club exposure will definitely boost the girls' morale against Sekoula," she said.

"The Suva competition enabled our players to come out from their shells and evenly compete with the best teams from Suva and Nasinu."

Butani is banking on some of her star players such as Fiji A reps Kelera Nawai and Alisi Naqiri to play a vital role for her team.

"We also have two tough defenders in Ratu Navula student Sainiana Nasau and 19-year-old Alisi Galo.

The side was crowned the Lautoka champion in the knock-out competition.
