ANOTHER Yalayala is set to stamp his mark on the rugby league scene.

Ananaiasa who is the son of former Fiji 7s national and Japan 15s representative Diri Yalayala, has been named in the Lautoka under-14 team to take on the touring St Marys side next month.

The Lautoka Primary School Year 8 student is part of the 20-member squad which will start training next week.

His uncle Samu is a former dual international having represented Fiji in rugby league and rugby union.

Lautoka U14 team official Mesake Navugona said the squad would have their training runs at Churchill Park ground number two every Wednesday starting from next week.

Navugona said the U14 competition was strong in the Lautoka zone.

"It will be good exposure for our U14 players," he said.

"The St Mary's team have been touring Fiji for a number of years. The club has a strong junior competition.

"We are also looking at getting our U18 and U18 teams involved in matches against the overseas teams as well.

"The management is working hard to get sponsors for the age group teams."

The following players are requested to be at Churchill Park ground number two at 3pm next Wednesday.

Saru Dragons: Viliame Vuloko, Temo Ledua, Tuimami Kafoa, Sorowale Asivorosi, Joseva Uluivuda; Lautoka Crushers: Siosaia Rokodrava, Vatilai Beranatabua, Tevita Tora, Matthew Koroi, David Dyer; West Tigers: Nimilote Ratudina, Ananaiasa Yalayala, Robert Morgan, Michael Maikoto, Kavekini Tuisese: Lautoka Rabbitohs: Suliasi Bogisa, Jess Saukuru, Maika Nabuno, Akariva Rasiga, Emosi Vuiyasawa.
