The second round of the Finance Hub Super League has seen more prospects participation from the six district teams competing in the competition.
The district teams fielding more young prospects into their line up in these past two weeks of the competition. In an interview with Naitasiri Highlanders vice president and Ra Roosters head coach, both informed us on the plans to engage more upcoming athletes into their respective club meetings.
Last weekend the MVP of each games were awarded to two prospects one a 19 year old player from Ra Roosters Laisa Tuimoro and the other player a 17 year old from the Nadroga Stallions Lusiana Nakalevu.
This was an integral part of these competitions as Netball Fiji aims to creating a pathway for young talents to continue and compete on a regular netball season.
Laisa Tuimoro was emphatic on her response when asked if she’d one day don the Fiji Pearls dress at the world stage.
“Of cause that is also what I want, to one day play for my country,” said Tuimoro.
“I’ve been playing netball from primary school and back at our community we use to play club competition, there are many young players in Ra that are playing club netball we will continue to develop.”
“I think this competition will create more game time for us young players, and will help with our development and we’re very lucky to be included at this years Finance Hub Super League.”
