THE Gusuniwai Rugby Club received a new set of jerseys from its sponsors Ranadi Plantation over the weekend.

The club which was formed in 2009 is affiliated to the Namosi Rugby Union. After receiving their new jerseys, team captain Niko Namatasere said they thanked the sponsors for supporting the team.

"This is a huge boost to us and we can say we're so blessed," he said.

"It is very hard to find sponsorships these days but we're thankful to Ranadi Plantation for coming on board in time to support us with our new jerseys."

Namatasere recalled the club started from a humble beginning.

"We started the club in 2009 and we went around looking for jerseys to wear. But then we managed to buy our own from our own initiative to fundraise."

The club which is based in Vunibau, Serua has competed in top domestic tournaments such as the Marist 7s, Nawaka 7s and other local tournaments.

"We have been playing in various local tournaments and this sponsorship will help the boys lift their preparation to another level."

The team will be known as the Swiss Ranadi Gusuniwai rugby team. Ranadi Plantation partners representative Jodi Smith said they were overwhelmed to support the club.

"This is a fantastic moment for us. These boys usually help out in our farm and to sponsor them is such a privilege for us."

Ranadi Plantation also sponsored the uniforms for the Gusuniwai netball team.
