Coach Senirusi Seruvakula says having experienced players in the team will help motivate junior players to play in test matches.
“That will be something that the other boys will be looking up to and if these boys can be playing that test level and its can boost them that this is the pathway for them it’s to showcase their talent in the PRC and they can be what is ahead for the now is to play in the Drua at the end of the competition here in Fiji but this is something we need to focus on first and then take this into their various club and province and we’ll be closely monitoring them after this PRC”.
Meanwhile, thirty-eight players marched into camp earlier today.
