THE Maumi rugby club will make its return to the Tailevu Rugby Union club competition after a decade.

And last week the side received a major boost when prominent bus company Island Buses Limited gave a set of jerseys, socks and rugby shorts to the club.

The bus company usually provides services to Maumi Village daily and director Viren Kewal said they were pleased to support the club.

"We'll actually this is a partnership, we're operating our buses here and they are our customers and now it is a good gesture," he said.

"They ask for something and we're happy to give the donation."

Maumi team manager Samuela Tuirara acknowledged their sponsors for their assistance.

"We're so thankful to Island Buses for supporting us with the new jerseys," he said.

"This is the first time for us to play again in the Tailevu Rugby Union after 10 years."

Maumi has produced top players over the years such as Alifereti Mocelutu, Samu Matawalu and Senitiki Biaukula.
