The Veiuto Primary School Under-10 rugby gladiators are embarking on a two-day tour to the Western side as part of their preparations towards the Galaxy Kaji Rugby top 16 play-off.

The side’s unbeaten run in the Cup challenge since wrestling the trophy from defending champions Assembly of God Primary School, had automatically earned them a spot in the quarterfinal.

The tour this weekend is a build-up for the quarter final next week.

The team will leave Suva for Nadi tomorrow and will play two matches against Mount Saint Mary’s School and Nadi Airport School.

Team Coach Master Benedito Rawalai said the enormous support from the parents had made this tour possible. It was something his boys had been looking forward to.

“Last year despite their good performance throughout they were unexpectedly bundled out in the quarterfinal and we do not want that to happen again. We have a good bunch of new players that had added to the mix and we are looking forward to a good outing.”

“The support from the parents has been great. We had set out a programme for the boys at the beginning of the season and we are glad many have come on board and we would also like to thank the school and the Ministry of Education for supporting us on this.”

Rawalai revealed that with a parents’ committee, they had set out a five year development programme for the team that will see them right through till their last year in Veiuto.

Parent’s Committee president Malakai Tueli said this was just the beginning of the many activities planned for them.

“We want them to have an overseas tour during their last year in school and we are committed to making that happen just like with this first local tour,” Tueli said.

He made special mention of CJ Patel Group of Companies, Fiji Water and Digicel who stepped in to help with the tour despite the short notice given to them.

“We hope our relationship with these companies will continue to grow in the years to come,” Tueli said.

The games will be played at Saint Mary’s Ground on Saturday morning before the side returns.

Apart from their rugby matches, this will also be an education tour to different offices.

They will also be visiting Fiji’s hub of tourism activities, Denarau.
