The Nadi Rugby Union will start its club competition today with many exciting match-ups.
Last year's runner-up Saunaka will face Foodhall Supermarket trophy holders Dratabua White at 3.40pm. The Saunaka club marks a milestone this season with the celebration of its golden jubilee.
In another interesting clash, 2013 champions Gaunavou will tackle Momi at 5pm.
Nadi Rugby Union media officer Rusiate Ratakele said club delegates had been briefed on the competition rules and regulations, and that they had released the club games schedule. "The hard-working executives have prepared the season planner and this has been forwarded to the clubs," he said.
"We have informed all clubs to submit their annual general meeting reports with the names and contacts of office bearers.
"We understand some clubs from the interior of Nadi have not been able to do this and we have given them time. There was a board meet on Wednesday and we have co-opted the director of KK's Hardware, Kavit Karan, on the committee. His company has been sponsoring the Challenge Shield for more than a decade.
"Petero Tuinirarama who is based at Nadi Police Station has also been co-opted. The aim is to run the affairs of Nadi rugby in a professional manner."
The admission for the club game is $3 for adults and $1 for children. The matches kick off at 9am.
