Uluinakau to breed more reps

Paulini Ratulailai
Monday, January 29, 2018

ULUINAKAU Rugby Club president Epi Kolinivala is on a mission of grooming future Fiji 7s reps.

Kolinivala said with the beginning of a new rugby season, Uluinakau aimed to attract young players and groom them, not just to play in any 7s tournament, but also secure overseas contracts.

"We've produced some national reps such as Setareki Bituniyata and Glen Cakautini. Our aim is to keep training our boys to secure them a national spot or an overseas contract just to help them improve their livelihood," he said.

"We have a new group of players. Some of our players, who have been with Uluinakau for the past years, are still with us and continuing their good work.

"We've started our training even though we didn't take part in the Mana Whey Fiji Coral Coast Sevens. The players were given the green light to play in other clubs.

"Our focus turns to the Congo Waimanu 7s tournament and then build up to our 7s tournament on March 16-17 at Ratu Cakobau Park.

"This is all our game time towards Marist 7s. It is going to be a busy year for us with the local 7s tournaments happening nearly every week which is good because fitness is what we monitor. We are working on getting our players into shape.

"We're on the lookout for top teams like Police and Tabadamu. We treat all teams the same, but for us we will have to keep our defence tight."
