THE Lautoka Primary Schools Rugby Association (LPSRA) will field two teams in each grade during the Western Primary Schools Rugby Festival next month.

LPSRA held its finals competition at the Natabua High School ground on Saturday with the tag rugby games drawing a lot of cheer.

Association president Tirani Uluinakauvadra said the introduction of the Get into Rugby program was welcomed by the parents.

"We had fruitful competition this year with increased participation," Uluinakauvadra said.

"The tag rugby games were popular with the involvement of girls. There was a lot of cheer for them to score the tries which carried more points.

"Vitogo District and St Thomas dominated the tag rugby games. Now the selectors will go through the list of players before naming the district teams for the Western Festival.

"Lautoka will field two teams in each grade. This is to maximise participation. For grassroots development you need to have broad number of children to play. It is about participation and not only winning all the time."
