Qera encourages Savura players as they receive new jerseys

THERE is no alternative for "hard work".

That's is the message of Flying Fijians captain Akapusi Qera during the jersey presentation for the Savura rugby club at the Tamavua Hall on Friday night.

Qera, commonly known as 'Q', started his rugby career with Savura before going to New Zealand, joined Nadroga upon his return, breaking into the limelight as one of the top openside breakaways in international rugby.

Qera presented the jerseys, sponsored by Lars Timber Solution Fiji Limited to the club and challenged the players to strive for excellence in all they do.

"It was a special occasion for the boys," Savura rugby club assistant team manager Sakeasi Talevakarua said.

"Qera's words of encouragement really boosted the players to aim high and it ignited that spirit to lift their game to a higher level."

Talevakarua acknowledged their sponsors for the kind contribution. Lars Timber Solution general manager Bryce Seru said they were honoured to support Savura club.

"The owner of our company was raised in Tamavua and this is something he did to give back to the community," he said.

"It's a special occasion for us because this is the first team we're sponsoring." He said Qera's advice to the players was so timely and he had no doubt more Fiji reps would be produced by the club in the future.

Savura rugby club had produced top provincial players such as Jokini Sivo, Manasa Uluiviti, Naitasiri duo, Inia Tora and Jalesi Liwaliwa and Flying Fijians tighthead prop Manasa Saulo.
