The Raiwai Raiders Inter Lane Nines competition gets underway at Kauvesi Park today. This was confirmed yesterday by the Fiji Police Force Youth co-ordinator Southern, Senior Inspector Ravu Dansey.

He said the initiative was boosted when the Samabula District Crime Free Committee Deo Singh came forward with a $100 donation.

“This donation helped kick-off the event,” Dansey said.

He pointed out the Fiji National Rugby League operations manager Joe Savou has agreed to send the match officials over for the event.

“We want to make this Nines competition a weekly one. The committee has already written to several business houses in the area and we are expecting to hear from them next week.

“But yes we are starting tomorrow and there will be another competition next Saturday as well.”

Raiwai Youth Community Council vice-president Tomasi Kolinitoga said such events kept the youths occupied and they did not get into drinking, especially when we are in the festive season.

“That was why we needed to organise a tournament after the Nines tournament in Sigatoka was deferred,” he said.
