THE Lautoka Primary Schools Rugby Union is excited about fielding its teams for the curtain-raiser matches to the Pacific Nations Cup Test between Vodafone Fiji and Tonga tomorrow.

The union held a tournament at the Vitogo Primary School last Saturday to select the players for the curtain-raiser matches.

Union president Tirani Uluinakauvadra said about 400 students participated.

Uluinakauvadra said sponsors Courts/Sports World forked out the expenses for the transportation of the students.

"Together with our sponsors, we have agreed to run grassroots development programs at the various schools in the Sugar City," he said.

"Last Saturday we started with a 45-minute skill drill before the games were played. It was very encouraging to see the girls participating. Now they are ready for the challenge to displaying their skills before a Test match.

"We acknowledge the Fiji Rugby Union and International Rugby Board for providing the kits to assist us in development."
