Cakaudrove to run Super Rugby competition
February 8, 2018 4:30 am
Cakaudrove Rugby Union aims to encourage and support local rugby competitions within villages throughout the province and lift the standard of the sport across its districts by running a rugby program called the Super Rugby Competition.
The Super Rugby competition also allows an opportunity to identify and recruit coaches and managers across the senior and Under-20 teams which is an important element for athlete development.
Cakaudrove rugby team head coach Rayne Simpson says the province has players with capabilities and skills of donning the national jersey.
“There’s a huge potential if players are given the opportunity to participate so our main focus is to unearth these players to reach the highest level of rugby so we will need the club coaches and villagers to come together and work towards the development of the Cakaudrove team.”
The Union has been working with the Roko Tui Cakaudrove, local police and various Tikina’s to develop and prepare a long term rugby development plan for the province since the end of the Vodafone Vanua Championship season last year.
Meanwhule, the Fiji Rugby Union recently released the draw for the 2018 Vodafone Vanua Championships and the union will host four home games and travel for three away games.
