The Outrigger on the Lagoon Fiji rugby league side added another title to their name after winning the Intercontinental Fiji Footy 4 Fiji 9s Tournament at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka yesterday.

Team manager Leone Rokovada said the preparation for this tournament had been a challenge for his players.

“We trained on a daily basis and prepared our players mentally, physically and spiritually,” Rokovada said.

“When we went in, we had no doubts of winning this tournament.”

He thanked the resort’s general manager Peter Hopgood for driving the idea of having a rugby league side made up of the resorts’ staff.

“Having an in-house rugby league side is also in-line with our Health and Fitness Programme,” Rokovada stressed.

The side defeated Baravi 14-0 in their last match to clinch the title.

Rokovada added that the side is hopeful to retain the title in the upcoming 9s tournament.
