VODAFONE Fiji Bati coach Brandon Costin has selected a strong Fiji Residents squad to take on the Mate Mae Tonga development side next month in a three test series here at home.

Twenty-five local players have been selected after strong performances during the Vodafone Cup competition.

“We do believe that series will be key to providing exposure for our domestic players along with our regional counterparts in Tonga,” said Fiji National Rugby League acting chairman Don Natabe.

The first match of the tri series will be played on Saturday, June 1, at Nadovu Park, Lautoka, with the following matches on Wednesday, June 5, and Saturday, June 8, at the ANZ Stadium in Suva.

Ticket price offers a package for both the embankment area and the grandstand of $10 for a group of six 2 (adults and 4 children under 12 years) and $5 for 2 adults or 4 children.
