Uluinakau Aim For Top Spot

The Uluinakau Rugby Club is ready to take the top prize as they prepare for the Mokani 7s on Friday and Saturday at Mokani.

Uluinakau rugby club manager, Vasu Vesikula said they have been preparing for the tournament as a build up for their own as they are very confident about their players.

“We want to go into this tournament and win it,” Vesikula said.

“I am very confident that the boys can achieve what they set their mind to do because looking at their preparations as well, they are positive and working really hard.

“This Mokani 7s will also be a build up for us for our own tournament in January next year, so from watching the boys in this 7s competition will help us gauge where we are at and what we need to do to improve on our performance.”

This will be the first time that Uluinakau will be taking part in the tournament and Vesikula said the morale of their players is growing.

“Right now we have two teams, the development squad and our main squad,” said Vesikula.

“So what we are trying to do is gel the teams together so that the younger boys can get some heat from the senior players.”

But not everything comes without a price as the team is looking for sponsors and Vesikula said she hopes the player’s performance in the Mokani 7s will get them some sponsors.

“We are looking for sponsors at the moment because we don’t have enough money to look after 30 players.

“But I have been telling them to play to best of their ability so that we can get sponsors and they need to produce the best results because that will attract sponsors so we are hoping to get some interest from outside,” she said.
