Sovau says team wants better finish this year

Maciu Malo

RAVORAVO Rabbitohs rugby league team has set its focus at the upcoming Fiji National Rugby League elimination stages.

After winning the Nadi zone beating Nadi Eels 18-12 in the final on Saturday, the side is confident of a good outing this season.

With just two years since its formation, the club reached the main quarter-final last season with the aim to improve its standing this year.

Captain Josateki Sovau said they needed to improve on their fitness knowing the do-or-die eliminations would be a tough mission.

"We used the Nadi final as a platform for the main quarter-final and we are happy with our effort," he said.

"We still need to work on our fitness and we really need to be perfect in our game execution.

"The boys committed many basic mistakes in the final — this is something we cannot afford to repeat in the main elimination."

Sovau said the side had introduced a few young boys in the side to combine with their seasoned campaigners.

He said the Rabbitohs would need to dig deep to improve from where they left off last season and hoped they do well this time.
