Rugby is the way for young players, says, Central Jun­ior Under-16 coach Waisea Cama.

Players in the team have been making waves in the two-day Suva Rugby Kaji 10’s tournament at the Bidesi Park in Suva.

The players are from around the Suva area registered under the wings of the Harlequins rugby club in Samabula.

Speaking to Sun sports Cama said rugby is becoming more than just a sport with players from all back­grounds to share and bond with­ their peers.

“I’m honored to coach these young boys because there are some amazing and talented players in this club,” Cama said.

“During my player’s assessment I came across some very interesting players information.

“Some of these boys come from broken families, a particular play­er’s parents are separated and he lives with his mother and the sad thing is that his step father chased him from home.

“Some players come with no bus fare back home – we help them.

“We want to involve them, keep them occupied with sports other­wise when they are idle they are bound to do stupid things.

“It’s a challenge that most teams constantly face in the country but we are here to guide them, who knows some of them will go on to be world class players.

“Rugby is the only way out for some of these boys and we are here to help and develop them be the best version of themselves. Not only to be a good player but be great men in their communities.

“They enjoy playing, they enjoy the comradeship.

“Our goal here is to keep them oc­cupied so that when school resume they have not lissed out much.

“Central Junior is a new club com­pared to the regulars and well organized clubs.

“We assist our players using our own money so if there others who can assist we are grateful.”
