Devel­op­ment is one of the main ar­eas that Rewa Rugby Union hopes to achieve from their 10s tour­na­ment that was played at Bure­basaga Dis­trict School ground yes­ter­day. Rewa rugby coach Peni Ku­rusiga said they have been in the B Divi­sion since 2012 and have since tried to work their way up to the ma­jor union. “Our aim is to get out of the B Divi­sion and it has been a real chal­lenge for us since we got de­moted in 2012,” the for­mer Bure­basage winger said. “We have been reach­ing the B divi­sion fi­nals in the past years so we re­ally want to ac­tu­ally win this year.” With the fo­cus to de­velop the cur­rent play­ers in the squad, Ku­rusiga says, the aim to top the B Divi­sion is what is driv­ing their devel­op­ment work. “Devel­op­ment is some­thing ev­ery team strives for no mat­ter what com­pe­ti­tion it is and that is the same for us. We can­not go into any com­pe­ti­tion just for the sake of it. We go in be­cause we want to im­prove from last year. That is where devel­op­ment comes in, when we drive the play­ers to give their best and achieve goals that are set for the team.” Mean­while, Kab­uleka won the Rewa 10s tour­na­ment beat­ing Tacilevu 8-0 in the fi­nals.
