Fijian rugby legends this week will host rugby activities in several schools and villages across Fiji.
Former Wallabies Lote Tuqiri and Radike Samoa have joined Queensland Reds’ Joana Rabaka and Issac Henry in visiting particular schools that are being reconstructed in the north following the damages left by Tropical Cyclones Yasa and Ana.
The team yesterday visited the Fijian Drua Headquarters. They got to tour the facility and speak to the players in wishing them all the best with the upcoming crucial match against the Queensland Reds. They also joined a Get into Rugby PLUS festival at Saint Thomas Primary School in Nadi. At the school, they got to meet with participant students, families and teachers from several primary schools across the district.
Vuvale Week will conclude with a family fun afternoon event on Friday, 2 June, at Albert Park in Suva. The event will be free to attend, with music, bouncy castles, and entertainment. There will also be Rugby sessions for children.
“Vuvale Week promises to be an extraordinary experience. We look forward to celebrating the fantastic sporting bonds between Fiji and Australia and giving children across Fiji an opportunity to meet their Rugby heroes from Australia and Fiji,” said FRU Chairman Peter Mazey.
Vuvale Week is supported by the Australian Government’s PacificAus Sports program.
