“After training, I make an effort to watch previous Jersey Flegg Cup games, I’ve seen their technique and pace. It’s faster-paced then what we are used to here in Fiji. Every day I make sure to watch the previous games from the competition and visually learn some skills to help me with my training every day.”

He further emphasizes that he’s observed a significant strengthening of the team’s bond, attributing it to everyone’s concerted efforts to ensure that their performance consistently meets high standards.

Meanwhile, Coach Wes Naiqama will name his final 30-man squad in four weeks, and they will play against the West Tigers in their inaugural match in the Jersey Flegg Cup on March 9th.
