The Fiji Secondary Schools Rugby Union today released the names of the two teams that will make up the FSSRU National Test Team and the FSSRU Fiji A Team.
Both teams will go into camp at Nasinu Secondary School this Wednesday, before meeting in their first match at Marist Brothers High School grounds on Saturday 1 September 2012.
According to the FSSRU President Mr Paula Motu that after the trials last week, these are the best players that they have picked to represent Fiji in the Under 18 National Test Team and the Fiji A Team.
“To select these two teams we worked closed with the FRU’s development team members”.
“We sat down and discussed the different caliber of players that we will need to go up against the Australian School Boys, and we have made one or two changes, but I can assure you that these are the boys that will do the job for Fiji”.
Motu added that they intended to work closely with FRU in the lead up to the two fixtures against the Australian School Boys.
“The boys will go into camp this Wednesday at Nasinu Secondary School, with preparations to be intense, and we will need the FRU Development Officers help in preparing our two teams” Motu said.
The first match will be this Saturday between the Fiji School Boys XV and President XV at 10am.
The Australian Schoolboys touring party will meet the Fijian President’s XV at Lautoka’s Churchill Park on 22 September before facing the Fiji A Team on 25 September also at Churchill Park.
