Support for rugby league

Maciu Malo
Wednesday, July 09, 2014

OUTRIGGER on the Lagoon Fiji has taken another step forwards towards sports development in Nadroga.

After recently donating $10,000 for the newly formed Nadroga Rugby League Association, the resort has bolstered the school rugby competition with a donation of $16,000 to all participating rugby teams in the area.

The resort was also a major sponsor of the champion Nadroga side over the past years.

Resort GM Peter Hopgood said a decision to support school rugby was recently taken by the resort management team to boost rugby in the areas.

"It's high time for the resort to get behind the secondary schoolboys competition so when it comes for the schoolboy's championships later in the year, our local teams will have every opportunity to take out the cup," he said.

"The resort provided the local competition with a cheque for $16,000 which will be used to provide all of the teams with rugby jerseys."
