Club inks new deal

Maciu Malo
Thursday, March 27, 2014

LOCAL 7s giant Red Rock has signed a sponsorship deal with the Grand Melanesian Hotel in Nadi last weekend.

Hotel manager Mahendra Naidu said the objective of sponsoring rugby players was to assist players in maximising their rugby potential.

He said the hotel would provide accommodation, transportation and meals for the team during the Fiji Bitter Nawaka 7s next month.

"We have been with Red Rock for a couple of months now and we are sponsoring them for the Nawaka 7s," said Naidu.

"We always support the boys to realise their full potential — the sponsorship is worth around $5000."

Red Rock manager Mosese Yamaivava thanked the hotel management for the sponsorship, saying it would boost the morale of the players at the Nawaka 7s.

Yamaivava said the sponsorship would also attract new players to the side to fill the gaps created by the 10 players who had secured rugby contracts in Australia.

"We will be recruiting new players to join the side because most of our boys will soon join their overseas clubs.

"And with the sponsorship made by the hotel we are confident more new players will join us soon."

He said the club would camp at the hotel five days before the Nawaka 7s.

The club has groomed some of Fiji's 7s stars such as Sireli Bobo, Niumaia Cakacaka, Jasa Veremalua and Peni Gaunimeke to name a few.
