The 2016 Skip­per Cup com­pe­ti­tion is go­ing to be tougher and bet­ter from this week­end. Ar­riv­ing at Nadi In­ter­na­tional Air­port, last night Tele­com Fi­jian War­riors coach, Senirusi Seru­vakula said play­ers have been re­leased play for their re­spec­tive pro­vin­cial sides on Satur­day.

He praised the play­ers for their hard work as they won their two match tour to Uruguay. The War­riors beat the Uruguay na­tional team 44-22 and 42-28 re­spec­tively. “It was a good tour­na­ment with lots of lessons learnt. This is an­other big step for the boys, from the Pa­cific Rugby Chal­lenge (PRC) to the in­ter­na­tional game (World Rugby Pa­cific Chal­lenge) next,” he said.

Lift per­for­mance

“I sa­lute the boys for their ef­forts, the short pe­riod we had pre­pared and we man­aged to come away with two big wins.”

Seru­vakula said the player’s per­for­mance would be mon­i­tored dur­ing the Skip­per Cup com­pe­ti­tion.

“They have to lift to an­other level af­ter com­ing back from na­tional du­ties and at the end of the Skip­per Cup and Fare­brother I will be nam­ing my squad for next year’s PRC.” Mean­while, War­riors cap­tain Peni Ravai had joined his new club South­land in New Zealand.
