Finishing in the top eight of the 2014 Skipper Cup competition Tebara Bus Tailevu Rugby Union believes there is more to be done in the new season.
Head coach Inoke Male believes the players would be boosted if they were provided with some kind of incentives after winning a game.
“The players’ performance would only be good if they are given some incentives from the committee as a reward after winning each game,” Male said.
“This happened this season. The players were given no initiative from the committee. If they would have been given something then performance will be good,” Male said.
Union president Maika Rainima believes this is something they have learned this season which they will have to better next term.
“We did not make any promise to the players on the amount we will give them because we do not want to make false promises,” Rainima said
“I do not blame the team, but we had a budget that we were working on and that includes camping, preparations and club games.
“We are not only focusing on national competitions, but club games as well where we are paying for the ground, medics and referees.
“We are on a rebuilding phase; we just have a few old players in the team and the rest of the team members are new players. I know the team was aiming to finish in top four, but for me I’m happy with their performance.”
Male said he wanted to prepare a strong Tailevu side for the Farebrother Trophy challenge.
