THE Fiji National Rugby League (FNRL) primary schools competition scored a flying start on Saturday.

The competition is called the National Primary Schools Rugby League Gala Day which kicked off to a great start last Saturday at Lawaqa Park.

The event was a joint effort by the FNRL and NRL Fiji.

NRL development manager Fiji, John Jewiss said six schools competed, whereby 31 teams altogether took part in the day-long competition.

Jewiss said the games were played in three grades; under-10, U12 and U14. It included competitions for girls.

"Winners from last Saturday will progress to the national finals, which takes place on April 8," he said.

About 1000 spectators turned up to witness their children and loved ones in action under the scorching sun at Lawaqa Park.

"It was overwhelming to see how the interest has begun to grow and I commended the tremendous effort put in by the FNRL development officer Nadroga/Navosa, Suliasi Cakautabua and his colleagues, who helped make this event a success."

This Saturday will see the Suva -Nasinu Gala Day at USP grounds. Registration begins at 8am, while games commence from 9.30am.
