Lautoka to focus on clubs

THE Lautoka Rugby Union will only select players who play in the club competition for the district team.

This comes after many senior players have opted to stay away from the club competition following the Maroons dismal performance during the Skipper Cup.

Acting union chairman Samu Yalayala said there would no longer be a free walk into the squad.

Yalayala said their club competition had notched up a level after a change in the structure.

"We have seen that the interest has returned with more fans turning up for the matches. If we continue to have this kind of competition then Lautoka rugby will grow stronger. The semi-finals will be held this week.

"This year we introduced the play-offs from the quarter-finals. This has made the competition more interesting. We have implemented this new structure which is good for rugby.

"We have also adopted a strict policy for the players wishing to represent the Maroons. Players who only play club games will be given the chance to play for the district."
