The Acting Commissioner of Police Rusiate Tudravu this morning hosted the winning Police Sharks to morning tea after receiving the spoils of their win of the Fiji National Rugby League Vodafone Cup final over the weekend.

 

In thanking the team the acting Commissioner said with the Sukuna bowl challenge just around the corner, the win has laid the platform and a challenge to those who will be donning the Blues 15s jersey to also deliver a win.

He also thanked the team for using their time to conduct community policing engagements which is an integral component of the policing Fiji through sports concept.

 

Also present at the morning tea was former Fiji sevens forward and Nadi Police officer Epeli Vuniwaqa who came out a two years lay off to help the Fiji Police rugby league team Police Sharks win the FNRL Vodafone Cup against Burenitu Cowboys.

 

The prominent police sevens player started to fade out of the sevens scene and began concentrating on police work. However the urge to once again run onto the rugby field was too strong and he eventually decided to try out his luck with the thirteen men version of the game he loves, where he got the nod to join the Sharks training squad.

Not only was joining the Sharks a way for the Tavualevu native to show his appreciation to the Fiji Police Force, but he said it was a personal challenge with the eventual goal of securing a spot for the Police League World Cup next year.
“I’m privileged that I was able to lend a hand in creating history for the Fiji Police Force and with my age catching up I believe I still have a few more years before I  finally hang up my boots”, said Vuniwaqa.
