Ilaitia Tuisese Junior is the new coach of the Naitasiri rugby team for 2019.

The former Flying Fijians forward replaces Koli Sewabu who is now the Fiji Rugby Union development manager.

He aims to win the Skipper Cup Premiership and defends the HFC Bank Farebrother Trophy.

“I’m looking forward on taking the team forward from where we left off last year,”he said.

“And with almost a third of our first line players joining the disciplined forces (Army, Navy and Fiji Corrections) early this year, we have our work cut out for us.

“We will keep breeding our players who are coming through our system like we have been doing in the last 20 years and hope that they will all become much better rugby players than when they first started with us.

 

Harder task

“Winning the Farebrother trophy last year was no easy task and retaining it this year will be much harder. So it asks for a lot more sacrifice from the boys and our coaching staff.

“Our main goal this year is to win both the Skipper Cup and Farebrother trophy and like any other team in the competition, we all hate to lose. And it all depends on the work that we will put in now.”
