There’s good news for western rugby league fans as the Kaiviti Silktails will play all their home games in Lautoka.
The Silktails will make their debut in the New South Wales Rugby League competition, the Ron Masey Cup in March.
Silktails ambassador Petero Civoniceva met with Lautoka City Council Chief Executive Jone Nakauvadra yesterday to finalize the details.
Civoniceva says the Kaiviti Silktails will be based in Lautoka and they’ll play their 10 home games at Churchill Park.
“The fact that we are gonna be based here in Lautoka working with the local council and also working with the schools and community and hopefully providing them with a wonderful game day experience”.
