‘Bula Boys’ Auction Jerseys Today

ACT Brumbies “Bula Boys” Henry Speight and Tevita Kuridrani will auction their jerseys after the game against the Hurricanes tonight.

This is to raise money for those affected by Tropical Cyclone Winston.

“It is a really tough time that Fiji is going through at the moment and being Fiji-born and raised with Tevita it is something that we found is the right thing to do and something that we want to do,” Speight said.

“We want to hopefully get some awareness out there and some assistance, no matter how little it may be it will go a long way.

“No one was really spared last week and everyone sort of had their own stories and some far worse than others.

“Families houses are torn apart and flooded and my high school (Queen Victoria School) is totally damaged and we just want to give back.

“At the game we are trying to raise as much as we can, There will be buckets going around so to all the fans out there and family and friends if you have a spare dollar or two on you, you can drop it in the bucket which will be highly appreciated.”

The reality of damage in the wake of TC Winston and what thousands of Fijians are going through has affected Kuridrani as he urges fans, family and friends at the game to help.

“With everything that has been happening in Fiji it has really affected me throughout this week just thinking about people back home and things they have been going through,” Kuridrani said.

“A dollar can help someone with a bottle of water to drink, so hopefully everyone can donate as much as they can.

“I will be putting my game day jersey on auction after the game and all the money we raise from this auction, we will send back home.”

The ACT Brumbies will face the Hurricanes at 9.45pm at Canberra Stadium tonight.
