Former Fiji Bati Captain and Australian Rugby League Legend Petero Civoniceva is holidaying at the Coral Coast.

And like every top sports personality, Civoniceva is mixing holiday with some coaching clinics while staying at the Outrigger on the Lagoon Fiji resort.

He has been asked to help coach the Outrigger on the Lagoon Knights in the lead up to tomorrow’s Vodafone Cup 2014 Premier Grade quarterfinal.

The Knights will meet River Safari Navosa Warriors in the quarterfinal.

Resort general manager Peter Hopgood said the team had benefitted from a personalised training session with the rugby league great who had represented Queensland, Australia and Fiji on the world stage.

“It was wonderful of Petero to take time out from his much needed holiday to assist the boys with their training,” Hopgood said.

“It is well known that some of the best Fijian rugby league players in the NRL competition in Australia come from the Coral Coast. Therefore, it is only fitting that we support our local competition plus develop our own team.

Hopefully one day another great rugby league legend like Petero Civoniceva will emerge from our local competition,” he said.

The Nadroga Knights – Navosa Warriors quarterfinal match kicks off at Lawaqa Park Ground One at 2pm while the Lautoka Crushers take on Raiwaqa Knights at 3pm in another epic battle.
