ELEMACA Ravulo is back as the Fiji Secondary Schools under-18 coach.

The former Nabua 7s coach replaces Josaia Rokomarawa who has been retained as the forwards coach. Saimoni Baikeitoga has been roped in as the backline coach while Southern Zone Secondary Schools president Mika Sela is the team manager.

Antonio Rabualiku, the coach of the reigning Coca-Cola Games girls division champion Jasper Williams High School, has been named the strengths and conditioning coach of the team.

Fiji Secondary Schools Rugby Union president, Napolioni Silatolu said all the coaches were recognised by the International Rugby Board.

"They have IRB level two coaching certificate. We followed criteria whereby the interested parties were asked to apply and through a thorough selection process, we selected them to lead the Fiji U18 team to the Tri Nations in New Zealand," Silatolu said.

Last year, the Fiji Schoolboys created history after defeating New Zealand 22-20 in Australia.

Silatolu said Rabualiku was considered for the job of strength and conditioning coach as he was the only one who applied for the post on time.

"We received other applications but they came after the closing date."

The Fiji U18 trial begins this Saturday in Suva.
