Australian Prime Minister’s XIII winger, Patricia Raikadroka, will be featuring for the Fiji Airports Nadi Aviators in the McDonald’s Coral Coast 7s this weekend.

This was confirmed by team manager Jacquelin Shannon during the Basic Homes Tabadamu 7s at Prince Charles Park in Nadi yesterday.

The rugby league star should give the Aviators the cutting edge during the tournament.

“We also have Patricia Raikadroka, Australian PMs XIII rep playing for us this weekend and at the Coral Coast 7s,” she said.

She said Fiji Airports Nadi Aviators side will be leaving no stones unturned as they took out four wins against the BLK Blue Mares.

The side beat Mares 31-5 in the first match, the 45-0 in the second match, before winning the final one 33-5.

Shannon thanked the organiser for the inclusivity at the tournament.

“Disappointing that only two teams showed interest for this tournament but we are thankful to the organizers for still going ahead with the women’s category,” he said.

“The team is preparing well ahead of the Coral Coast 7s and we look forward to improved performances from the players individually and as a unit,” she said.

“We have a few new players who have joined the club from secondary school as we always aim to develop the future crop of national representatives.”

The team knows the atmosphere at stake and ready to compete at their best.
