Maciu Malo
Sunday, August 17, 2014

MARIST Brothers High School under-17 player Simon Lilicama has set his target to don the All Blacks jersey in the near future.

The former Coca-Cola Games sprinter who helped his team defeat Lelean 25-18 in the final has secured a two-year rugby scholarship in Otago.

Lilicama said the win was a fitting farewell and thanked his teammates for fulfilling his goal.

He said the victory was also an early birthday present.

"Firstly I am happy to help the team maintain our unbeaten run," said Lilicama.

"It is good to end this season on a high note and to get a fitting farewell before I join my new school in New Zealand.

"My aim is to train hard and to become an All Black in the near future."

The Wairiki, Taveuni, lad has also urged his teammates to maintain their unbeaten run in the U17 competition next year.

"I am hopeful the boys will maintain our unbeaten run next year.

"The team bonding is strong and the brotherhood in the team enabled us to stay unbeaten."

Lilicama will join his new school next year.
