The Fiji Bati Residents squad are preparing well in camp for the upcoming Tri Series against Great Britain and Australian teams.

Residents’ manager Chris Tomlinson said the side comprise of elite players from across the Fiji National Rugby League Vodafone Cup competition.

“Players have been selected from clubs such as the Sabeto Roosters, Nabua Broncos, West Fiji Dolphins, Nadera Panthers and Saru Dragons,” he said.

“To help the squad assimilate the coaching staff, led by Vela Tawake, we took the boys to Lomolomo beach for a team bonding session.”

Tomlinson said this was followed by a field-based skills session in the afternoon.

“The mood in camp is very positive and we’re looking forward to the next few weeks and showcasing the best rugby league players in Fiji.

“I urge all rugby supporters- of any code-to come to Prince Charles Park and Lawaqa Park to support these boys.

“Fijians always get behind their national teams and we hope that it will be no different during this tri-series.”

The Residents play their first game on Thursday, November 15, against Australia Affiliated States at Prince Charles Park, Nadi, at 3pm followed by a Test against BARLA on Saturday, November 17, at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka.

The Residents close the Tri-Series with their second game against Australia Affiliated States at Prince Charles Park, Nadi, on November 23.
