Tavodi Ready To Lead

Apakuki Tavodi is going to captain the Kaiviti Silktails as they take on Glebe Dirty Reds in Round 13 of the Ron Massey Cup competition at Henson Park, Sydney, on Saturday.

“I’m thankful to the Silktails management from whom I’ve learnt so much for my game development and off the field character building.” The match against Glebe Dirty kicks-off at 2.30pm (Fiji time)
