Four-Year Development Plans For Ra

The Ra Rugby Union has put in a four year development plan for the provincial team.

Team manager Onisimo Sadraviu revealed the way forward after they lost to Serua 19-11 in the Vodafone Vanua Championship last Saturday at Thompson Park

“We need to start small and work towards our vision. We’ve a plan in place and our mission is to play in the Skipper Cup Premiership competition in 2022.”

“We did not win any games last year, we had 5 loses with a win by default as we did not appear to the match,” Sadraviu said.

“The four-year strategic planning comes in handy for the Ra Rugby Club to uplift our performance following our sterling performance at the Vodafone Vanua Rugby Championship, last year.

“While other Rugby Club have adapted and moved on embracing professionalism and making financial gains out of it, we seem to have been stuck in the depth of amateurism. However, we started to review our system and we have drew up a solution, the four year development plan,” he said.

He said discipline in sports is crucial.

“Discipline to eat right, train well and behave as a role model,” he said.

“Most of our boys are from the district of Rakiraki, I always tell the boys’ that discipline is the key to victory.

“It is also vital to be disciplined as rugby players to perform on the field in the right manner and as coaches to work hard and teaching all your players the right techniques.

“Pushing, shoving, patting on heads and general lack of sportsmanship are some of the key areas this men needs to adhere to because at local tournament this is going to hurt us, penalty offence at first and warning of yellow cards subsequently.”
