Youth members of the Saioni Rugby Club from Kalabu in Nasinu participated in their annual cleanup campaign yesterday.

Organiser and team manager Jesoni Tagicakiverata said the aim of the activity was to engage the youth so they do not get involved in criminal activities.

“This is part of our programme that has been going on for the second year, and the response has been good from the players themselves in embarking into activities like this,” Tagicakiverata said.

“Later on we will be having our second programme which is the foot patrol with police, where we will assist them in trying to keep law and order in the community.”

The rugby club is affiliated to Nasinu Rugby Union, with a few players playing for senior Nasinu rugby side.

“We have players with amazing talents, who need guidance and enhancement so that they use their talents in the right place and time.

“We’ve done this last year and assisted the Fiji Police personnel at Valelevu Police Station and Kalabu Community Post.”
