THE Tailevu Rugby Union (TRU) is doing all in its power to ensure their players in the Fiji rugby national teams get the most out of their tour overseas.

Thirteen players from the Tailevu under-20 team are in the national under-20 team that is in South Africa to take part in the International Rugby Board (IRB) Junior World Championship (JWC).

Two players from their senior side, Leone Nakarawa and Isake Katonibau who have become household names in the national sevens team are in the Flying Fijians that will fly out to Japan today for the IRB Pacific Nations Cup (PNC).

In a statement to Times Sport, TRU secretary Jone Batiwale revealed the Union has given out $1500 to their players in the both national teams.

Tailevu Rugby has donated nearly $1500 to help 15 young Tailevu rugby players in their expenses as Fiji Rugby makes a call for the national duties, Batiwale said.

The players in the under 20 team are Jale Sassen, Esekia Macu, Sakiasi Kautoga, Seru Cavuilati, Alifereti Mocelutu, Samu Kerevi, Josua Kerevi, Elica Ratucove, Tikilati Vuibau, Jimilai Rokoduri, Alex Hodgman, Ratulame Lewanavanua, and Jone Turaganivalu, he said.

The 13 players were given $100 each for pocket money, and Nakarawa and Katonibau were given $150 each.

Batiwale said the TRU was proud of their players in the national teams and wished them well on their endeavours.
