Army wives aim high

Maciu Malo
Wednesday, July 23, 2014

FIDELITY Royal Army Wives netball team is targeting for a spot in the Lautoka netball super premier competition.

Boosted with the selection of seven players to join the Lautoka side for the upcoming IDC tournament, the side is confident of fulfilling its goal and to rub shoulders against the best players in Lautoka. Team president Mere Rokosiri said the morale of the players was boosted with the selection of seven players.

The players selected are 18-year-old Susana Saukuru, Reapi Driyalewa, Ruci Tamata, Ateca Seru, Jiu Takia, Oripa Mai and Elena Lauwai.

"Our goal is to win the senior premier division title to secure a spot in the super premier competition," said Rokosiri.

"The girls are aware of the challenges ahead of them and we are committed to our goal.

"The selection of our players to represent Lautoka speaks volume of the talent in the side and I am optimistic of our chances."

Rokosiri said the 31-20 win over Waiyavi last weekend had set the platform for this weekend's game.

"We are ready for the Saturday game and we will give our best shot to keep our hopes alive."

Rokosiri also thanked their sponsor Fidelity Royal, an England-based company, for providing the players with their outfit.

"The assistance provided by our sponsor has inspired our netters to fully utilise their talent.

"This was proven by our seven netters who have been selected in the Lautoka team," she added.
