Shipping company helps Namadi Babas rugby club

THE Namadi Babas rugby club finally has a new set of jerseys.

The club, which competes in the Amabassador Grade in Suva Rugby Union competition had been using the same jersey for over 10 years.

Last week, Seaview Shipping chief executive Durga Prasad answered the plea the club had sent out through this newspaper last month for a new set of jerseys.

Club coach Iliesa Vakarau said the donation had motivated the players to improve their ranking in the competition.

"The old jersey was old fashioned and it got heavy when wet but these jerseys now are much better and players are comfortable in it," he said.

"Also we have seen the attitude of the players change and the turnout at training has increased and the performance is also expected to improve."

Vakarau said they would need to show to their sponsor that the investment was worth the money.

"We thank Mr Prasad of Seaview Shipping for his gesture and we will do our best to not only impress him but to progress in our competition."
