THE Suva under-14 side for the upcoming Australian tour was yesterday presented with a new set of rugby uniform supplied by the Uprising Beach Resort.

Uprising Resort operations manager James Pridgeon said they were fortunate to be associated with grassroots rugby, especially Kaji rugby.

Pridgeon told players after the presentation that as sponsors they are proud to do their part in supporting young rugby players in the country.

Pridgeon said this was the second young team they had sponsored this month after sponsoring the Fiji U19 basketball team to the Oceania Championships in Australia.

Suva U14 team official Wise Namosimalua thanked Uprising for the sponsorship and believes it will inspire the team during the tour.

Namosimalua said the team had been training well and the boys were looking forward to the tour.

"We've been training as a team for the past three weeks and everything is looking good as we round off training this week," Namosimalua said.

The 22-member team will play two games in Sydney.

A group of parents will travel with the team to help in looking after the players during the tour.

The team is expected to leave the country next week.
