THE winner of every match of the 2014 HFC Bank Farebrother Challenge would win $5000.

This was revealed during the competition launch at the Holiday Inn in Suva on Tuesday night.

Fiji Rugby Union chief executive officer Radrodro Tabualevu said the new sponsors of the competition would put in a lot of money for the team in the event.

He said the teams in the competition would get HFC Bank branded kits, 10 match balls and $2000 for preparation.

Tabualevu said the team that won the challenge match would get $5000, the Man of the Match would get $250 and the participating unions would get a CJP hamper and T-shirts for teams and Bula shirts for the officials.

Technical and match officials would also get uniforms for the game day.

"Through the support of our consortium partners in particular HFC Bank the challenge is even bigger and better," Tabualevu said.

"We trust that your investment and this platform will continue to put you into the minds of our people and we look forward to working closely with you in the coming weeks."

HFC Bank Chairman, Tom Ricketts said rugby was important to the nation.

"When it comes to Fiji Rugby our stadiums are jam-packed and I am sure you will all agree that this sport is a leading sport and is the catalyst to bring our people and communities together," he said.

"HFC Bank is proud to be associated with the Fiji Rugby Union and their strong brand."

The Farebrother Sullivan Trophy challenge has been an annual event for the past 72 years.

This Saturday, Nadroga will defend the title against challengers Naitasiri at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka.
