The Kaiviti Silktails are on a sixday break spending the Ron Massey Cup round 10 bye in Australia’s tourism capital, the Gold Coast, before heading to Melbourne to watch some big games in the National Rugby League competition.
The Silktails landed on the Gold Coast on Tuesday, going straight to the Gold Coast Performance Centre at Runaway Bay for check-in and then held a field session.
Placed sixth in the RMC, the Silktails itinerary had a bucket list including visits to DreamWorld and the Brisbane Broncos camp.
Silktails chief executive officer Stephen Driscoll shared his excitement for the Fijian players hoping that more talents will be inspired to pursue the same rugby league pathway in the country.
The team witnessed the double header between the Wests Tigers against Newcastle Knights and the Manly Sea Eagles against the Brisbane Broncos at the Suncorp Stadium on Friday night.
The Silktails were scheduled to attend the triple-header between Canterbury Bulldogs against Canberra Raiders, Cronulla Sharks against South Sydney Rabbitohs and Sydney Roosters against North Queensland Cowboys at the same venue last night.
The Silktails host Cabramatta Two Blues at Mascot Oval in Sydney next Saturday. The Bulls are placed second on the RMC points table.
