Former Vodafone Fiji Bati coach Josaia Dakuitoga has been named as the new head coach for the Fiji Bulikulas that will participate at the Pacific Championship in Papua New Guinea next month.

This tournament will be used as a build-up for the Rugby League World Cup qualifiers next year.

FNRL chairman Aporosa Lutunauga made the announcement in Suva yesterday. Dakuitoga was the coach of the Fiji Bati as the Rugby League World Cup in England last year.

“I want to thank the board for giving me this opportunity to lead the Fiji Bulikulas. Everything has been good so far. We had picked a squad of 30 payers for the match against Samoa. From the 30, we will pick 20,” Dakuitoga said.

Meanwhile, Josephine Maejiirs has been named as the captain of the team.

The Fiji Bulikulas play Samoa in PNG on October 15.
