New gym to boost Nabua

FOLLOWING the opening of their new gym last week, the Nabua Rugby Club has now turned its focus on securing sponsorship.

Club secretary Joe Gonewai said the executives were trying to return the club to its glory day status when they used to be the national champions of sevens rugby.

He said it was not an easy task since they had limited funds to work with.

"Running a 15s and 7s club is not easy especially when we have a lot of talented players but limited funds," he said.

"We are looking for sponsors and if a sponsor were to come through, it would greatly benefit the team and its players."

Gonewai said they were looking forward to participating in the Central Coast 7s tournament in Australia later this year and a sponsor would greatly assist the team in their bid to compete in more international sevens tournaments.

"The revival plan is on track with our 15s team doing well in the Suva Rugby Union competition and our 7s team getting invitations to compete overseas.

"But we have to turn most of them down because of lack of funding but that would change if we were to have a sponsor."
