George Hickes is proud of his son Frederick Hickes who departed yesterday with the Telecom Fijian Warriors for the Americas Pacific Challenge which starts on Saturday in Montevideo, Uruguay.

Frederick plays as a utility for Nadi in the provincial competition.

“I am proud for my son to be part of the team for the second time,”the former Nadroga soccer rep said.

“I want him to live his rugby dream and I will support him all the way.”

He reminded his son not lose hope or give up easily and Frederick was proud of the family support.

“I’m looking forward to the tournament with a great bunch of players,” Frederick said.  The Telecom Fijian Warriors are in Pool B with Canada A and Uruguay A, while the Argentina XV, USA A and Samoa A are in Pool A.

“Short preparation time should not be an excuse. We have the boys to do the job,” said skipper Rupeni Nasiga.

“We have given our 100 per cent and the result will come. We are definitely positive of a positive outcome.”

Nasiga said the inclusion of Nadroga players should be an added boost.
