THE annual Sukuna Bowl competition has received a huge boost after BSP Life injected a sponsorship worth close to $50,000 to help in the organisation of the event.

The rivalry between the two forces — the Fiji Military Force and the Fiji Police Force — will take place on December 7 at Churchill Park in Lautoka. Fiji's leading life and health insurance company BSP Life presented the cheque to the representatives of the two forces at the RFMF headquarters in Nabua on Friday last week.

"The Sukuna Bowl has become a premier sporting event in our nation's calendar. This sponsorship was driven mainly by the growing popularity of this event and the way it is organised," BSP Life's managing director Malakai Naiyaga said.

"It has indeed become an anticipated event not only for members of our disciplined forces but for our community at large and for those who love rugby."

Fiji Military Forces' Brigadier General Mohammed Aziz challenged the Fiji Police Force to win the title from them.

Commissioner of Police Brigadier General Ioane Naivalurua while accepting the challenge, said they would do their best to take the prestigious bowl to their home in Nasova.
