A BOOST for local rugby players with Fiji’s New South Wales Cup bid with Fiji’s entry into the New South Wales Rugby League Ron Massey Cup next year receiving the green light to go ahead.

“I received the confirmation yesterday and it is really great news,” said Fiji NSW Cup bid coordinator Petero Civoniceva.

“It has been a long journey and a lot of hard work and we are just glad it has, at last, come through,” he said.

Civoniceva said a door had opened and it was an exciting time to be a rugby league player in Fiji.

Trials have also been confirmed to happen as early as November this year.

“National trials will go ahead this year, and we will look to widen the net all over Fiji to gather as much of the talent as possible.”

The Ron Massey Cup will begin in May next year.
