Written By : Sun Fiji Sportsdesk. Nasinu Netball Association has named Lanky Taraima Rara, Matelita Shaw and Mere Rabuka in their MH Tour team.
The three, currently playing club games in Australia, were yesterday named by Nasinu coach, Alumeci Vosararawa as part of her team one. They playing for Southerland shire a top league club in New South Wales.
Team manager, Vivian Koster yesterday confirmed that the three players were not in the country but they have been named because they requested to.
“We want to give them the opportunity to play for the MH Tour when they come in.”
“It was their request that we put their names in.”
Koster said the three players have played for their Nasinu clubs before they left for the land of the long white clouds which means that they qualify to represent Nasinu.
“We suspect that they would be coming in when they have their break.”
“We want to give them the benefit to play when they come.”
She said like national defender, Matila Waqanidrola who is currently in Spain, they would also be given a chance.
Nasinu is also looking at experienced players like Mere Tupou, Lani Tuisasa and Seruwaia Batule to boost their team in the knockout competition today. Meanwhile, the fate of former national rep, Leba Dolobula Waqavakatoga would be known today, on which team she would represent for the MH tour.
Koster said Waqavakatoga had indicated her availability to play for Nasinu but rumours has it that she would represent the capital side.
“We will leave it to her to make the decision on which team she wants to play in.”
Vosararawa earlier told SUNsports that Waqavakatoga was a registered Grasshoppers club player.
