Cori Mada ready

BY ELTON LONARATHA JNR

TASK Force Cori Mada 3 Rugby Club (RC) is geared up to make a significant impact in the DC Park Rugby 7s Solbrew series, which is set to kick off at DC Park in East Honiara this week. The team, originating from Fiji, will represent the Republic of Fiji Military Task Force Cori Mada Base in Honiara during the three-day tournament.

SunSPORTS caught up with the team yesterday during one of their combined sessions with Covenant RC, another team competing in the tourney but in the Youth Division. Team assistant coach Marika Kuroboko shared insights about their preparations, expressing confidence in the team’s readiness.

“The preparation has been going well in the past weeks,” Kuroboko told SunSPORTS. “It’s great to come over and feel the weather here in the Solomon Islands. Our preparation includes two recent friendly matches played at the Town Ground Stadium.”

Kuroboko emphasized the team’s enthusiasm and readiness for the tournament. “We are looking forward to our games this weekend. We always love to come to the Solomon Islands and share the love of rugby. We came over with 12 players ready to make their debut at the tournament,” he added.

Task Force Cori Mada 3 RC will face Diesel Mens RC in the first Men’s Division fixture at 1:20 PM. The DC Park Rugby 7s Solbrew series will commence this Friday at the venue and will run until the 16th.
