CONCERNED guardian Jovesa Naitoga is calling on the stakeholders overseeing primary schools rugby to look after the welfare of the players' playing in the competition.
His nephew Akuila Tora sustained injury during the Suva Kaji Rugby competition at Marcellin Primary School grounds in Vatuwaqa on Saturday last week.
Ten-year-old Tora, who plays for Assemblies of God Primary School under-10 team, fractured his left forearm in on Saturday.
"The child was at the ground with his aunt and was given only $10 by the coach and no one else from the school or the FRU rugby development people or anyone from the medics to assist them to the Raiwaqa Health Centre," Naitoga said.
"Branches from a tree near the ground were used as a brace to support his arm. He was given special treatment by the doctor and sent home with an advice to get an X-ray at CWM Hospital the following Monday which we did."
Naitoga said he had sent a letter highlighting the issue to the permanent secretary of Ministry of Education and the Prime Ministers office.
"There is no compensation or insurance policy for primary and secondary schools rugby in any case of injury. If there is one, then the memorandum of understanding should be provided."
Fiji Rugby Union schools administrator Taione Vunicagi said he was on leave and could not comment on the issue.
