Kaiviti Silktails Players Manoa Vilikesa and Ratu Temesia Jilivecevece will both miss the Round 10 game this weekend, after accepting an early plea at the judiciary.
Vilikesa will miss one week and Jilivecevece three weeks – both for Dangerous Contact.
Jilivecevece had carry over points from two earlier suspensions received while playing with the Ipswich Jets in the Queensland Cup this season.
Head Coach Wes Naiqama said on these suspensions “…It’s a shame as we finally got some experience back in the team and now we lose two of them to suspension. It’s a fine line now when you go into contact, as you can see this in the NRL down to the lower tier competitions.”
19 year old back Timoci Kotuisuva and 20 year old back rower Fenton Williams will come into the squad now.
The Kaiviti Silktails will play Penrith Brother’s in Round 10 of the NSWRL Ron Massey Cup, this Saturday (25/05/2023) at Prince Charles Park, Nadi. Kick-off at 7pm FJT.
The Silktails’ participation in the NSWRL’s Ron Massey Cup is proudly supported by the Australian Government through PacificAus Sports.
