THE Bua Kaji Rugby team is ready to unleash more future stars at the Galaxy Kaji Rugby competition today.

The northern province has produced top international players such as Seru Rabeni, William Ryder and Rupeni Caucau dubbed, "the Bua Bullet".

With about 103 young ruggers in the U9 to U14 age-group competing at this year's event, Bua team officials said they've got capable players who had the skills and talent to become national reps.

"We've got 103 good players selected from nine districts in Bua," said Foreqe Hilton Sau, the Bua Kaji rugby president.

"We're here to display our talent who are future stars and our coaches know that."

Sau said that after making their debut in the competition last year, when their under-11 side won the shield, they were looking forward to raising the bar this week.

"We're here to compete, unlike last year, we came in just to feel what the competition is like. But now after feeling a bit of experience, we're eager to deliver the goods against any team."
