The Rewa rugby team’s 10-day tour to Lakeba, Lau involved a lot of community work on  the island besides running daily clinics.

In a facebook posting from Lakeba,  Rewa Rugby said:

“With reference to the weather advisories, the Lakeba Rugby Union exercised prudence to forego the “Solevu” planned on December 17 and the much anticipated Game 1 Rewa vs Lakeba scheduled for Friday, December 18.

“All other programmes are similarly suspended and will be reviewed once the weather eases.

In the meantime, the team on Wednesday undertook community work project through a clean-up campaign at the Lakeba Hospital compound.

“This was appreciated by the health authorities here and also brought satisfaction to the team to be able to contribute to the community through this work. Lunch was hosted at Levuka Village.”
