More teams join Nadroga zone
Four women’s and Under-18 men’s teams have joined the Nadroga Zone for this year’s Vodafone Cup season.
Zone co-ordinator Suliasi Cakautabu said they were expecting a successful season. “With new teams joining the zone we are expecting the competition to be more competitive,” Cakautabu said.
“Last year, the games were not very competitive but this year all teams are almost on the same par as they battle it out.”
Fiji National Rugby League development officer Etonia Naiwasetawa said the focus now is on the development of referees and touch judges. He said FNRL is committed to ensure that they are able to lift the standard. “My first plan now is to update the referees and touch judges accreditations. Most of these referees only have level one so my focus now is to help lift the standard,” he said.
