THIS year marks the fourth year of this annual event of the Kontiki Finance Battle of the Victorians Rugby Challenge.

Kontiki Finance gave a total of $3000 to boost up the QVSOB annual rugby challenge to be held at the Sacred Heart Cathedral ground in Nasese next weekend.

The QVSOB RC (Suva) will host and they aim to make it a “bigger, better and memorable occasion”, and double it up as the last match of this year’s rugby season.

Secretary Tevita Tuiloa thanked major sponsor Kontiki Finance Ltd for coming on board again this year.

“The match will be played by the Kontiki Finance QVSOB RC, based in Suva and the QVSOB RC based in Lautoka, an East vs West encounter,” Tuiloa said.

“The main purpose of this event is to provide a platform in which players of both rugby clubs can showcase their skills and talents to potential scouts, as rugby has proven to be a source of income to many Fijian players over the years.”
