Nakaiolo Brothers hungry for a win

AFTER two days of the Raka 7s the Nakaiolo Brothers are hungry for a win.

Winning all their games in the Standard Concrete Bay MYF 7s tournament at Ratu Cakobau Park yesterday, the Kadavu lads are ready for an intense quarter-final.

Coach Josevata Bola said the boys had improved on their performance compared with the Raka 7s and had been executing their game-plan to win all their pool games.

"The boys' fitness has improved as what we have expected. To actually play 7s every week has been a training foundation for us as we keep on trying to improve on our performance in every tournament we play," he said.

"My players are all youths and unemployed and what keeps them driving on in life is the passion of playing rugby.

"As a coach we all want what is best for our players and we're doing our job to make them successful in life, but it is all up to the players to work hard."

The Kadavu-based team defeated Wailevu 1 12-5 and Hills 19-5 and will be looking forward to their game against Uluinakau in their last pool game to secure a spot in the quarter-finals.

Bola said they had three players who had been injured in last weekend's tournament but that had not dampened their spirits and carrying on doing what they loved to do.

"We're looking forward to a very tough challenge today and we hope to come out as winners," he said.
