THEIR playing days maybe over but this group of determined former Nadera rugby players are keen to continue helping their community.

The Nadera Old Boys met yesterday to discuss ways of helping reduce the crime rate in their area.

NOB president Malakai Finau said they were planning to collaborate with the Nadera rugby club and help contribute towards their community through rugby.

"The other area we are looking at is contributing through church. We have projects for development which we want to achieve through sports and involving church as well," the manager of the Fiji 7s team that won the 2005 Melrose Cup said.

"Nadera is known for high crime rates so one of our biggest challenges is to help reduce that through the projects we will discuss."

The theme of yesterday's meeting was 1991 Vanua Shield win in the Tailevu Rugby Union club competition which was then played under the banner of Rewa Rugby Union.

Finau said they had about 50 members based locally and overseas including former dual international and former Fiji 7s assistant coach Etuate Waqa.
