Timely boost for club

THE Davetalevu rugby club from Nadroga received a set of twenty five brand new jerseys, socks and shorts last week from their overseas sponsors Presidio Capital, which is based in Malaysia.

Club president Jone Ratu said it was a morale booster for their players and officials as they are in the midst of their tough T16 competition this year for the Nadroga Rugby Union competition.

Presidio and Davetalevu have formed a very formidable partnership for the past 21 years where the local rugby club has been travelling in Asia and Australia to compete in both 7s and 10s competition.

"We are very grateful to Presidio Capital for their continuing sponsorship to Davetalevu and we hope our boys will show their appreciations by performing high standard rugby and win games in our local club games in Nadroga to keep our sponsors happy," said the former national rugby rep.

They are the reigning T16 champions after winning the final last year.

So far this season, Davetalevu has won three games and lost two.
