Team back from tour

THE Ovalau Rugby Plus team returned from their three-month tour of Australia last month and hailed the experience as "once in a lifetime".

The side consisted of 22 players who were selected from the 12 clubs affiliated with the Ovalau Rugby Union.

Rugby Plus national co-ordinator Lasarusa Nasenaivalu said this was the second tour for the team and the most successful one.

"On tour, we won four trophies and reached the final of one tournament and the quarter-final of another," he said.

"The tour was a good exposure for the boys because this was the first overseas trip for some of them."

He said most players in the team were either farmers or fishermen.

"This was a trip of a lifetime for many of these players because we don't know if they will get another chance to go overseas again.

"Many had never played outside Ovalau. They visited the North Queensland Rugby League Stadium in Australia and were in awe of its size and facilities."
