THE Nadi Blazers rugby team receives a timely boost from their sponsor Radisson Blu Resort at Denarau ahead of the newly introduced women's Skipper Cup competition later this year.

The hotel gave T-shirts and training vests for the team as part of its commitment to help the growth and the development of the sport in the country.

Resort general manager John Bendtsen said he hoped the donation would help boost the morale of the players for this new season.

He said the resort had been supporting the team since 2016 and was grateful to continue with the partnership.

"We are very happy to sponsor the Nadi Blazers it is something we're very pleased to do, to help young people in Fiji," said Bendtsen.

"We feel that the growth of sport is very valuable for young people to develop and something we are very pleased to be doing.

"We have been doing this since 2016 and at the moment and we would like to continue sponsoring them.

"At the same time this is an area that hasn't been valued greatly so if we can help women sport and highlight their prowess and something we are happy to do."

Team and Fijiana 15s captain Leilani Burnes thanked the resort for the commitment to maintaining their partnership.

"Raddison Blu has been supporting us two years ago and we are grateful to the ongoing support.

"We are happy to have some beautiful polo shirts and training vests which is a morale booster for our team.

"We have been taking part in all the major tournaments and the gift will boost the morale of the girls for the women's Skipper Cup competition to be introduced this year," she added.
