IC11 Squad - first look at youthful Fiji

The Fiji Tribe has been named for IC11. Making their debut at senior level, the squad is dominated by youth, with an average age of just 20 years. Many of the youngsters from their recent youth sides (pictured at left) are included in the team.

Coached by Lawrie Woodman (AFL) and Glen Butler (AusAID Development Officer), people will be keen to see if the team brings with it the athleticism seen in players such as Nic Naitanui (West Coast Eagles). The side is by no means filled with giants, with only four players registering in the 190+cm range (6'3") and an average height less than 183 cm (6 foot). But if that quartet are solid players and can fill key positions then it should give the Tribe a good structure to build their running game around.
