THE Harlequins Rugby Club received a new set of jerseys including a training kit from Pacific Agencies (Fiji) Limited yesterday.

The shipping company joined hands with the Suva-based club last year and promised a long-term partnership.

Pacific Agencies (Fiji) Limited general manager Craig Strong said their sponsorship was worth about $10,000.

"As an organisation we realise that club rugby is the backbone of our game and partnering with a club like Harlequins on an ongoing basis, we are doing our part in the development of the game," Strong said.

"We sincerely believe that the support of the Harlequins will assist the club in building of the character of the players.

"What attracted us to Harlequins is that the club has centred the community development on the game of rugby."

Club president Viliame Baleivanualala said they formed the club in 2008 with the vision to help youths secure a bright future through overseas rugby contracts.

He thanked Pacific Agencies (Fiji) Limited for its continued support.

Harlequins, which plays in the Suva Rugby Union premier (Escott) club competition, hopes to finish in top 10 this season.
