New Name For Kaji Rugby

The Fiji Primary Schools Rugby Union’s 2014 Kaji Rugby tournament will now be known as the Rewa Galaxy Kaji Rugby when it is played on August 19-22 at the ANZ Stadium, Suva.

In announcing the change of name and an increase in sponsorship at Rugby House in Suva yesterday, CJ Patel Group marketing director, Nathan Hildebrand said the new sponsorship of $120,000 was an increase of $40,000 from last year.

“We believe that Kaji Rugby is the single most important programme on the FRU calendar. As it is the Kaji programme sets the platform for our future rugby success,” he said.

“This is why we are pleased to announce an increase in the allocation for Kaji Rugby by $40,000 to $120,000 this year and additional to the cash commitment will be the various on ground activities that our team will be co-ordinating during the Rewa Galaxy Kaji tournament to promote healthy eating and an active lifestyle.”

Hildebrand believes that with the increase in sponsorship they are sure that the future of Fiji Rugby is brighter than ever and are looking forward to many years of international success.

He also explained why they chose Rewa Galaxy.

“Rewa Galaxy flavoured milk is the perfect partner for rugby development. Rewa Galaxy is packed with the calcium our junior rugby stars need for strong bones. Rewa Galaxy has the carbohydrates for the energy that our Kaji players need and Rewa Galaxy is fresh and new just like our future stars,” he said.

Fiji Rugby Union chief executive officer, Radrodro Tabualevu welcomed the  name change.

“Since its inauguration in 2002, the Fiji Primary Schools Rugby Union has grown in intensity and popularity moving past its 10 years of existence and steadily progressing into the future, “Kaji rugby has the largest representative of players under the Fiji Rugby Union. Its total number of active players in an organised competition is 59 per cent of the total rugby population,” Tabualevu said.

Fiji Primary Schools Rugby Union president Joji Seruiratu commended the increase in sponsorship.

“This is what we have been praying for. I thank the sponsors for the kind donation that they have given to us,” Seruiratu said.
