THE Tavua Rugby Union received an $18,000 worth gym set from the Prime Minister Rear Admiral (Retired) Voreqe Bainimarama in Tavualevu Village yesterday.

Team coach Akariva Tabutaci said the gym set came at a time when the team needed it the most.

"We have been praying for this," he said.

"For so many years, we had to make do with what we could get from other people but with this gym set we can be able to do our much needed training done in our own time," he said.

He said a gym was also in the works.

"Government has also promised us a gym and we will have a home base for our players with the construction of this gym.

"It will probably be completed within the next two months."

Chief guest Rear Admiral (Retired) Voreqe Bainimarama said the gym would contribute to the development of rugby in Tavua.

He said through government's efforts to provide equal opportunities for every member of the community, they agreed to supply the team with new training equipment and a new gym.

Meanwhile, the team have been preparing well for the Skipper Tuna Provincial Tournament this weekend.

Tabutaci said the team had been preparing for the games for more than two months.

"It has been a long and hard process but we are ready to go on the lead and perform our best tomorrow (today)," he said.
