The Jack’s of Fiji- led consortium of sponsors yesterday announced that they are backing the Nadi Rugby Union to achieve greater things in the 2019 season.

During a press conference in Nadi yes­terday, it was revealed that the Jack’s of Fiji consortium of sponsorship, which includes No.1 Currency, Tourist Trans­port of Fiji, Radisson Blu Resort Fiji and Wyndham Resort have put in a total of $126,000.

The Jack’s of Fiji–led consortium of sponsors feel that the support will have a psychological boost to the Nadi rugby team before their opening Skipper Cup Premiership clash against Nadroga in April.

Jack’s of Fiji public relations officer Biu Tadranu said the decision was made with the intention for Nadi Rugby to improve on their performance when compared to last year.

Last year the Nadi senior team finished sixth in the Skipper Cup Premiership, the Nadi Under-20 Concorde won the Skipper Cup U20 while the Nadi Women reach the semi-final of the 10s competition.

“The Nadi senior rugby team finished in sixth spot last season, they were closer being relegated for the first time to the B division. We had done our ground work meetings from time to time to address the issues pertaining the union,” Tadranu said.

“Past years Jack’s of Fiji focussed on merchandise but this year we are handing over more training gears.”

No. 1 Currency general manager Feska­toa Kostatino said, they are thankful for the opportunity to be part of Nadi Rugby.

“Every Fijian is so passionate about rug­by and we are here to share the success with the community.”

Tourist Transport of Fiji general manag­er John Hardaker said, “This is a fantastic gesture as this is all on a volunteer pro­cess and it is great for TTF to be part of.”

Nadi Rugby Union chairman Sekove Tui­lakeba said this is a big year for them.

“It is only appropriate that we thank the sponsors and also do our part well to take Nadi Rugby to another level by staying competitive this season,” he added.

NRU launched their preparation for 2019 last year when they had their inaugural Jack’s Fiji franchise rugby competition.
