TWO key players from the Suva Rugby Union, Savenaca Tabakanalagi and Peni Kamakorewa, depart the country today to join the Paeroa West Rugby Club in Thames Valley, New Zealand.

The move is the result of an agreement signed between the union and the Paeroa West Rugby and Sports Club.

A statement from union chairman John O'Conner said a Memorandum of Agreement was signed earlier this month and would enhance the development of players in the union competition.

"The agreement provides an opportunity for Suva Rugby Union players to further enhance their skills, knowledge and playing career in the Paeroa West Rugby Club," he said.

"Savenaca Tabakanalagi and Peni Kamakorewa are the first Suva Rugby Union players given this great opportunity."

O'Connor gave the two their tickets yesterday and reminded them to value the opportunity, play hard, remain committed and focused on furthering their rugby careers in the club and likewise in New Zealand.

He said their performance this year would pave the way for other players in the future.

"The Suva Rugby Union is hoping to send two players to play for the Paeroa West Rugby and Sports Club every year."

The statement said Steven Hill; the captain of the Paeroa West Rugby Club, shared similar sentiments.

"The club is looking forward to the arrival of the two players and is enthusiastic about the contribution of the players," he said via a statement.

"This is a great opportunity for the two players and the sky is the limit if the players remain disciplined, committed and focused on their rugby."
