Rotuman Sports

From Arnold Jacob in Lautoka (13 June 2008)

The Fiji Rotuman Sports Council (FRSC) annual volleyball tournament was held on 30-31 May at the multi-purpose courts in Lautoka. Given the closure of the gold mines in Vatukoula, Tieri Club was unable to participate; however Satarua, Sarafui and Raesea travelled from Suva to join Granville from Nadi for the tournament. Host club Moiro made up the fifth club.

From the outset of the two days, the skills and talents Rotumans have to offer volleyball at a national level were evident.

Granville took the women's team title whilst Raesea collected the men's and mixed teams trophies. Moiro, who were runner ups to both the women's and men's title, shared the overall winners trophy with Raesea. Satarua was awarded the Best Dressed team trophy.

FRSC president, George Atalifo, thanked all participating clubs for yet another successful tournament and wished all clubs well in their preparation for the October games.
