The Fiji Sun yes­terday presented $40,000 to the Repub­lic of Fiji Military Forces to help their Ratu Sukuna Bowl and International Defence Rugby Champion­ship defences.

Fiji Sun Managing Edi­tor Digital Rosi Doviverata presented the cheque on behalf of Publisher/CEO Peter Lomas and said:

“It is an enduring part­nership that has been fully honoured by the RFMF.”

Commander Fiji Navy Captain (Navy) Humphrey Tawake, speaking on be­half of the RFMF, thanked the Fiji Sun for their con­tinuous assistance for RFMF rugby.

He said: “The Fiji Sun has supported us during diffi­cult times, they have sup­ported us when we needed help and they have sup­ported us when we needed a genuine partner.”

Captain (Navy) Tawake said as the defending champion, they would work extra hard to keep the Ratu Sukuna Bowl at the Queen Elizabeth Bar­racks in the eagerly await­ed annual match with Po­lice on November 23 at the ANZ Stadium.

The RFMF will also de­fend the International Defence Rugby Champion­ship in Japan next year. They won this in 2015 in England, beating the Brit­ish Army 30-10 in the final.

Military teams taking part in this include from such rugby powers as New Zealand, South Africa, Australia, France and the British.
