Saint Mary’s Primary School headboy Kartik Krishan Sharma displayed the qualities of a leader not only in school but in the playing field.

This time apart from playing he was the coach and mentor to the young participants during the Bula Tag Rugby festival in Dreketi, Macuata, Vanua Levu, last Saturday.

The 14-year-old Labasa lad guided the younger players during the festival that was organised by the Fiji Rugby Union development in collaboration with Quickrip New Zealand Rugby, Get Into Rugby and the Fiji National Sports Commission at the Maramarua District School in Dreketi.

Children from the ages of 8-14 participated in the one-day event to upgrade their skills on rugby and learn the core values of rugby.

Sharma had one motive and that is to be the first from his family to don the national rugby team jersey.

“Nothing is impossible and with this festival I can upgrade my skills and basics of being a rugby player and in a few years’ time.

“I can be as good as other players who are representing Fiji,” said Sharma.

“My long term goal is to play for Fiji in the international arena and to be the first in my family to don the Fiji rugby jersey.”

The humble and outspoken lad helped in organising students of Saint Mary’s during the festival.

“It is my duty to help our coach and teacher organise the students because there are four teams and he will need my help,” he added.

 

“The festival has really helped me a lot in terms of passing and obeying the rules but most importantly making decisions for the younger grades and helping them understand the rules of tag rugby.”
