Daveta names strong squad

THE Daveta rugby side has named their travelling squad for the inaugural Limerick World Club 7s Festival in Ireland that would be played on August 9 and 10.

Daveta has been drawn in Pool C with Moscow Saracens, Munster and San Francisco.

Included in the side are extended Fiji 7s squad members Ropate Labalaba and Jerry Tuwai.

Team manager Paula Biu said their main aim was to give international exposure to those players who could be considered for the national side.

"This team is made up of Nadroga players but they are busy with commitments with the Skipper Cup semi-final.

"We have excused them and sought out players from other clubs in Nadroga," he said.

"We have six players from Yamacia, two from Hideaway Hurricanes, two from Daveta, one each from Ratu Filise and Marist.

"Some have been to Australia, Asia and Samoa but this is totally different since it's on the other side of the world."

Biu said they were looking forward to running out on the field at Thomond Park.

"We don't know the strengths and weaknesses of those teams in our pool and we will only find out when we see them in action next week.

"But we are focusing on our first pool game and then we will take one game at a time and see where we stand and then take it from there." Biu said

"It's going to be tough because those teams have been competing at that stage before.

"So they are all coming with experienced players but we are also targeting to win the event."

The side departs the country this afternoon.

Daveta: Levani Kurimalwai, Levani Kurimudu, Ropate Labalaba, Apimelki Mocekula, Amenoni Nasilasila, Luke Navuwai, Eremasi Radrodro, Ulai Sauvocia, Simeli Taqeya, Emosi Togovaki, Laitia Tuitatava, Jerry Tuwai.
