It was a wholesome moment for the villagers of Momi when the Parramatta’s Prime Minister’s XIII contingents sampled kava amongst them.

Fox Sports reported that Parramatta’s Prime Minister’s XIII contingent Clint Gutherson, Nathan Brown, Mitch Moses and Reed Mahoney dropped into teammate Maika Sivo’s village, Momi, while in Fiji.

While in camp with the squad, the team met with Sivo’s mum, dad and the rest of his family and signed autographs for kids during the day excursion.

Maika Sivo, who finished the season as the NRL’s top try-scorer, has been sending money home to his family to help them build a house.

A few Eels jerseys were spotted in the group picture, as was Wests Tigers and Knights gear, and they sampled some kava.

Back in August, Sivo and his dad, Joeli Sivo had made headlines after he had flown in to Sydney travelling on a plane for the first time to surprise Maika.

It was the first time Joeli had seen his son play rugby league in six years at Bankwest Stadium.

The players are in Fiji ahead of the Prime Minister’s XIII game in Suva on October 11.
