Lelean Team Manager Marika Sovaki says they came in the competition expecting tough outings from their opponents.
“All teams are getting to be the top in the Eastern Zone, that the aim of all the team here in the eastern zone and it’s really difficult playing against QVS and RKS but with the boys, we have in our team we believe they can do the job on the field.”
