Nineteen year old Josua Rokonavutoro is a player to watch when the Vodafone Fiji Resident side takes on the overseas based Bati reps in the Battle of the Bati challenge this Saturday.
Fiji residents coach Jo Rabele says, Rokonavutoro has shown tremendous skills in the local competitions.
“One of the players that has been outstanding throughout this year is the Sabero Roosters half-back, as we know Fiji National Rugby League have a lack of scrum halves, so he is one of the players we will try to groom for this upcoming games and for him to showcase his talent in the Battle of the Bati."
Rokonavutoro will be among three other players for the Residents side who will be on debut this weekend.
The Vodafone Fiji Residents will take on the Bati on Saturday at Suva’s ANZ Stadium to select the Fiji team to the Rugby League World Cup next month.
