Warriors set for Skipper Cup
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.
“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.
