Golea: Nanuku is the Answer

Neumi Nanuku is the answer to the Vodafone Fiji Bati search for a first five, says a senior development officer.

Lagilagi Golea said Nanuku showed his class when Burenitu Cowboys took Vodafone Cup Top 8 leaders KBL Saru Dragons to the wire at Churchill Park in Lautoka last Saturday.

“Saru managed to score a 24-19 win right at the final minute,” he said.

“But it was the class of Nanuku that made things difficult for the hosts. His ability to make the right decision during pressure times and ability to exploit the opposition’s defence were the telling factors of the game. He should be drafted into the Bati squad for the next assignment.”

Golea said the Cowboys rise in the Top 8 competition was because of the work of the Fiji National Rugby League’s development officers. He pointed out that the Cowboys put into practice whatever was taught to them by the development officers.

He indicated that Nanuku combined well with his brother and former Fiji sevens rep Vereniki Waqa who is playing in the forwards.
