SRU clubs and officials with supporters are expected to flood the Capital city at noon today for the launching of their Super 14 competition.
SRU Chairman, Vilikesa Rauca stated, “The event is designed to promote the Super 14 competition featuring the top 14 teams in the capital.”
“The march procession is the first ever for Suva Rugby and is something exciting for the fans, the teams, the sponsors and of course the citizens of Suva,” Rauca added.
The new initiative will launch the 96 Escott Super 14, a new format expected to raise the level of competition and take the game to another level.
The teams in the competition were selected from the top three in four pools with Army Green and Lomaiviti automatically getting a spot for being the finalists last year.
All the top 14 teams that made it through the qualifying games over the first 7 rounds of play would march through including teams that have entered the Koroturaga Competition, culminating in the official launching of the Super 14 by the Lord Mayor of Suva, Ratu Peni Volavola.
His Lordship the Mayor will be accompanied by the Police Commissioner and SRU President, Commodore Esala Teleni.
2007 Tanoa Challenge Holder, Army Green will play Wardens at Kingsford Smith Pavilion, Albert Park at 3pm after the official launch today.
