Nadroga/Navosa Secondary Schools Rugby Association received a timely boost from traditional sponsors, Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort at the Coral Coast last Friday.

The association received $5000 to assist in the running of their competition for this year.

Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort general manager Peter Hopgood said development of rugby in schools was paramount.

“Our province has won every provincial rugby trophies and this year our goal is to capture the Deans Trophy.

“We want the Deans to be in the trophy room in one of our schools on the Coral Coast,” he said.

“This is our support to our local schools, to provide the opportunity so that these young men can hopefully one day play for Nadroga and then finally Fiji.”

Association president Sekove Rasukamaimaleya thanked the resort for their commitment in assisting in the smooth running of the competitions.

“This money will be used to run our competition leading to the Deans competition for the schools in the province,” he said.

“We thank Outrigger for the support for the fourth year, it has helped us a lot.”

Last year, Nasinu Secondary School edged out Cuvu College 8-7 in the Coke Zero Deans Trophy quarterfinal.
