The Kaiviti Silktails rugby league team left the country this morning for Australia to participate in the New South Wales Ron Massey Cup.
Their debut in the 2020 competition was short-lived due to COVID-19.
Coach Wes Naiqama says the real test will begin for them when the team lands in Australia.
“There’s being a lot of work around that especially with fill them in and letting them know what is going to be like over there and what they are in for because 7 months is a long time to be away from families but there’s a goal for everyone to achieve as a team.”
Naiqama says he is also excited to head the team in a territory that he is familiar with.
Families and relatives of the team were also present this morning to farewell the side.
The Silktails will be based in Sydney for the entire 2021 season, playing their home fixtures at Mascot Oval.
