Wardens Play For A Worthy Cause
The Wardens 7's rugby team during the Stronger Than Winston Rugby 7's Fund Raising Appeal tournament at Uprising Resort at Pacific Harbour yesterday.

The ‘StrongerThanWinston’ Fundraising Sevens Appeal tournaent was aimed to contribute to those affected by the Tropical Cyclone Winston.

And the Wardens would not let circumstances stop them from turning up at Uprising Beach Resort yesterday.

Coach Maxwell Hughes said although all their transport was deployed for cleanup around the country, this did not stop them from entering the competition.

“We actually came late because of transportation issues. We had to hire a carrier just to come down knowing how important this event can be in contributing to our players as well as people affected by the cyclone.”

Simeli Namua, who hails from the village of Bucalevu in Ra, played with his family on his mind.

“My parents are back in the village and from what I’ve heard there is nothing left as everything was blown away. Thankfully everyone is okay.”

As for Tevita Daugunu, who hails from Cakaudrove, Vanua Levu, playing for a good cause is something he is proud of.

“I cannot go back to help my family rebuild their houses but this is the least I can do to contribute to such a worthy cause.

Wardens lost in the semifinals to Spain 24-14.
