Nasaucoko receives timely boost

Maciu Malo
Friday, August 08, 2014

NASAUCOKO rugby league players were boosted with a timely gift of sports gear from Australia.

The side which is affiliated under the FNRL Navosa zone breathed a new lease of life with the gift of rugby jerseys, balls and other training gear from Wylong Roos fitness trainer Shane Selby.

The club also featured Fiji Bati tough forward Eloni Vunakece.

FNRL Navosa zone development officer Suliasi Cakautabu said the gift had inspired the village-based players to fully utilise their talents and to stamp their mark in the competition.

He said the presentation had also built a new partnership with their Australian counterparts.

"The gift has boosted the morale of the rugby players in Navosa," said Cakautabu.

"The players are excited and grateful to have formed a new partnership with an Australian club."

Cakautabu said Selby was later then presented with a whalestooth as a token of appreciation from the Nasaucoko club officials.

Meanwhile, in the Navosa zone semi-final encounter Tuwalu Tigers with the services of former Flying Fijian wingers Sekove Leawere and Isoa Neivua will battle against Vatubalavu Tigers while Keiyasi Cowboys face 3Jam Nadevo in the second semi-finals.
