THE Nadroga Rugby Union and Clermont Rugby Club from France have extended a two-year contract.

This deal will allow selected Nadroga players to be sent to Clermont for rugby developments in exchange with rugby officials from this famous French rugby club coming to Nadroga to conduct coaching clinics.

Nadroga rugby president, Tiko Matawalu said the contract was recently signed at the Outrigger on the Lagoon Hotel between the Nadroga rugby officials and Jean Marc Lehmet, the Clermont Rugby Club general manager.

"Jean Marc and an official from Clermont arrived last week for the signing for another two years, he left last Saturday while his companion has been conducting rugby clinics in schools like Nadroga Navosa Provincial High School, Sigatoka Misision, Cuvu College while players from Andra High School and the Sigatoka Valley High School had a special session on Monday at Lawaqa Park," he said.

"He has been focusing mainly on the basics in rugby and the importance of a proper diet as well as the general performance on and off the field," said Matawalu.

He said two school secondary school players had been earmarked to be sent to France.

"At the moment I cannot reveal the name of the two players until we sort out proper documents.

"Last year we sent two Nadroga players to Clermont where they had been outstanding in their performances," he said.

Yesterday the French and members of the Nadroga coaching team travelled to Malolo Island to conduct two days of rugby clinics.

"We told him Malolo Island comes under the province of Nadroga and they also need rugby development for their upcoming players.

"With the approval and blessings of the Tui Lawa, I hope it would be a worthwhile two-day trip," added Matawalu.
