The Fiji National Rugby League Junior Bati side will be playing two matches against the Caloundra State High School in Lautoka later this month.

Team coach Wise Kativerata said this would be another good opportunity for the Junior Bati players to test themselves against international opponents.

“We want to express our heartfelt thanks to Petero’s Sports Tours and the Petero Civoniceva Foundation for extending the invitation to the Junior Fiji Bati West and East Academies.

“They’ll be playing a thrilling double-header international fixture in Lautoka in the coming weeks against Caloundra State High School,” Kativerata said.

Kativerata thanked the Petero Civoniceva Foundation for their generosity in providing Fiji’s boys with this opportunity for international exposure.

The matches will be played on September 30th at Churchill Park in Lautoka.

Entry to the ground is free and FNRL has arranged buses for fans in the Southern Division to travel to Lautoka.

Details can be found on the Fiji National Rugby League Facebook Page.
