1853 FJT
Sunday, September 02, 2007

Update: 6.00 pm ISLAND zone champions Nakasaleka want a shot at B Division rugby.

Coach Ifereimi Vulibera said the side was looking at these options and would discuss it further at a full team meeting in Raiwai tomorrow afternoon.

He said Fiji Rugby Union scouts had expressed interest in four of their players including Vilikesa Nareki, first five eighth, Aminio Vulakauvaki, fullback, Joeli Ravuga, skipper Asesela Vulakauvaki and Marika Vunakelo.

For the last three years Nakasaleka has been the only side to have come from Kadavu to play in the island zone.

On Friday they beat island zone giant Koro 13-0 and are looking at greater things to come.

Vulibera said the win had brought together people from all around Kadavu in recognition of their success.

Rugby greats who come from Nakasaleka include national fifteens and sevens star and Kavala villager Setareki Tawake, his cousin and former Kadavu first five eighth Sitiveni Naivota, Suva first five eighth Apisai Donu and national hookers Pita Senavanua Kean and Mosese Tamata to name a few.
