Navuso ready

FIJI Tribe captain Alipate Navuso is ready to lead the national AFL side to the International Cup in Melbourne, Australia next month.

Navuso who led the Fiji AFL side that clinched the division two competition in 2011 has again been given the captain's armband.

He said it was an honour to lead Fiji again at such an international event.

"This is the second time they have given me the role to captain the side, and I'm privileged to lead Fiji again," the Lelean Memorial School teacher said.

Navuso said this year's team had blended with the experience gained from the previous IC and would boost the team.

"We have a couple of players who played at the previous international event and I believe we got a good mix of young and experienced players."

He said the side had been training hard.

The Fiji AFL men's side was promoted from division two to the top division.

"This is going to be tougher than before but we're ready for the challenge."

Meanwhile, the side will have a fundraising dinner at the Holiday Inn tomorrow.
