Fijiana aims for core status

THE Telecom Fijiana side will compete in Hong Kong next month in an attempt to qualify to become a core team in the 2014/2015 IRB Women's Sevens World Series.

Hong Kong is hosting a qualifying competition next month that will see four promoted to be core teams in the series.

Fijiana manager Selita Koroi said teams that reached the semi-finals would qualify to be core sides.

She also said none of the current core teams would compete in the tournament.

"This is the best opportunity for the Fijiana to become a core team on the series because the seven core countries are not part of this Hong Kong tournament," Koroi said.

Meanwhile, the 16-member Fijiana side to the Hong Kong tournament was named at the Grand Pacific Hotel yesterday.

Josephine Bavatu was the lone overseas-based rep to be named in the side.

Fijiana: Luisa Basei, Josephine Bavatu, Esiteri Bulikiobo, Rusila Nagasau, Litia Naiqato, Aloesi Nakoci, Roela Radiniyavuni, Timaima Ravisa, Elini Ratauluva, Akosita Ravato, Asinate Savu, Pricilla Siata, Rusila Tamoi, Vodo Tinai, Talica Vodo, Ana-Maria Roqica.
