Petero Civoniceva, Fiji Bati captain and Australian Rugby League legend recently stayed at Outrigger on the Lagoon for a family holiday and was generous enough to give his time to assist The Outrigger Knights team with their training.
The team benefitted from a personalised training session with the rugby league great who has represented Queensland, Australia and Fiji on the world stage. He was captain of the Fiji Bati team at last year’s world cup.
Resort General Manager, Peter Hopgood said that it was wonderful of Petero to take time out from his much needed holiday to assist the boys with their training.
“It is well known that some of the best Fijian rugby league players in the NRL competition in Australia come from the Coral Coast, therefore it is only fitting that we support our local competition plus develop our own team. Hopefully one day another great rugby league legend, such as Petero Civoniceva will emerge from our local competition.
