Young Mulomulo ruggers impress rugby league greats

AUSTRALIAN rugby league legend Andrew Johns has been impressed with the hidden talents in the country.

Johns together with fellow former Australian Kangaroo Bred Fittler conducted a coaching clinic at the Mulomulo Primary School in Nadi last Saturday.

The coaching clinics were hosted by the InterContinental Golf Resort & Spa.

Kane Evans from the Sydney Roosters also lent a helping hand in assisting with the clinics together with InterContinental Fiji rising stars Etonia Nabuli and Seremaia Masitabua.

Johns was surprised with the high level of hand-eye coordination the children had.

"They are naturals," he said.

Following the clinics, InterContinental Fiji hosted a lunch for the children and the stars. The students thanked the National Rugby League greats and sang a few of their favourite songs.

The resort has been working with the school since it opened in 2009 and runs a long-term "Community Care" fund which finances numerous projects to improve the school.
