Every year Fiji’s security forces meet in one of the most-anticipated events in their sports calendar.

Since its inception, the ANZ Ratu Sukuna Bowl event has developed in leaps and bounds.

What used to be just a fiercely contested rugby game has now developed into a 4-day event.

Golf, boxing, netball, soccera, volleyball and league now take centre-stage as well.

But in the security force circles, the trophies and shields won from the other sports become trivial when compared to which team would take the Sukuna Bowl (tanoa) today.

Yesterday, after the netball and volleyball competition, players and supporters were reminded that it was not all about winning.

In fact, the preparation phase of the two teams is vital.

This is where a special bond is nurtured within the team. Team work, communication and leadership qualities are developed.

These qualities ultimately help in the work of our security forces.

The annual event has also been set as a benchmark in terms of how many Fijian reps can be identified during the competition.

There are also plans to introduce a competition for the children of our service men and women.

This, again, will serve as a platform to identify raw and untapped talent.

The rugby encounter today will be no different.

While there will be those fighting tooth and nail for the treasured ANZ Ratu Sukuna Bowl, there will one or two who would be stamping their mark to one day don the white jersey one day.

May the best team win!
