Newport U14 to tour Nadi

THE Newport Junior under-14 rugby team will be playing friendly games against primary schools in Nadi next week.

The team from New South Wales, Australia often tours Fiji annually for the past decade, however, this year's tour is the biggest ever with 120 players and parents making the trip.

The visitors have a mission to win the "Bula Cup" which eluded the 2013 touring side.

Nadi District and Nawaka District schools are the local side that will compete for the Bula Cup next week Saturday.

Newport tour leader Angus Crichton is delighted with the turnout this year.

"Not only does it show the commitment of our community to this tradition, it shows the fundamental respect that has been cultivated towards our rugby friends in Fiji," he said.

"We urge everyone that can make it to Prince Charles Park next week Saturday, to watch the Fijian and Newport boys play some running rugby.

"It'll mean the world to all and offer an incredible opportunity to play in front of the local crowd, even if it means having more cheers for our opponents of the day."

Jacks Nadi Rugby Union media officer Rusiate Ratakele said the union was proud to be associated with the Newport Junior Rugby Club.
