FIJI under-18 rugby coach Elemaca Ravulo is hoping to select a strong 30-member side for the New Zealand tour next month.

During the first trials last weekend, Ravulo and his assistant coaches, Josaia Rokomarawa and Samisoni Baikeitoga witnessed some exciting talents where they have selected 40 players.

Today, the panel of coaches will watch the performance of players in the Lelean Memorial School and Ratu Kadavulevu School sides. The two schools did not send their players in last weekend's trials as the focus was on today's Deans U18 final in Lautoka.

Ravulo said he wanted to select the best available players from the top teams.

The team will be managed by Southern Zone Secondary Schools president Mika Sela and Antonio Rabualiku, the coach of the reigning Coca-Cola Games girls division champion Jasper Williams High School who was named as the strength and conditioning coach of the team.

Fiji plays New Zealand and Australian school boys in the Tri-Nations Test matches.
