A large contingent from the Western Division will participate at the trials in Suva next week in a bid to make it into the Fiji team for the Oceania Pacific Cup in December.

The Lautoka Hockey Association competition was cancelled at the Nadovu ground yesterday, to allow the players from the West to hold a training run in readiness for the national trials.

Association officials Fergus Underwood and Ernest Coffin conducted the training run targeting the fitness and skills level.

Underwood said after a long time many players from the West had been invited for the national trials.

"We have more than 20 members," he said.

"It is surprising to see that Nadi has proven to be more disciplined and have majority of the players participating in the trials. We hope to have at least 15 players named in the training squad."

Underwood said the Lautoka weekly competition would resume after the trials.

"Unfortunately the Inter District Competition has been cancelled just to cater for the trials," he said.

"We are looking at the tournament where Nadi, Lautoka and Ba will be represented respectively in Suva in October. The Mates tournament will be held in November. But our weekly competition will resume after the national trials."

The following players have been selected to participate in the national trials in Suva: Lautoka- (men) Samu, Marcus H, Mafi Tupou, Sailasa, Nitin, (women) Cheyenne, Underwood, June Tokona; Nadi (men) Kurk Simpson, Jonan Simpson, Martin Simpson, Stefano Pickering, Ross Pickering, Herald Williams, Bradley Williams, Fonmanu Rigamoto, Sefeti Rigamoto, (women) Ruth Pickering, Chanice Candy, Kerryanne Candy, Tafa Samisoni, Xini Samisoni, Robyn Samisoni, Temo Pasemaca.
