Nadroga rugby players are focused on the health welfare of their families.

Nadroga Rugby Union President Jiko Matawalu said yesterday the players have ventured into getting things right from home.

“Our players have been given their training programmes and at the same time they are spending quality time with their family which is good,” he said.

“This is an advantage for the team because when they return to camp everything is settled at home.

“I believe what we should practice now as a nation is to pray to God and seek his help to fight this virus because this is his world and only he knows the cure.”

Matawalu added that the directive from Nadroga Rugby to the players is to obey the instructions given by Government on the restrictions in movement.

“There is nothing much we can do but to follow the directives given by the authorities,” he said.

“For us we are adapting to that and to see that our players are given their training programmes to follow.

“The boys keep us updated through our chat groups on messenger in regards to the progress of their training.

“That way we are monitoring our players and at the same time we give them a new programme once they complete the first allocated ones.

“Some of them continue with their day jobs while the others are working hard on their farms,” he added.

Nadroga are current holders of the Farebrother Sullivan Trophy.
