The Ba market ground came alive on Saturday when about 500 children came to learn about tag rugby.

This initiative came from Milo partnering with Rugby Academy of Fiji, led by Seremaia Bai.

Bai, a former Flying Fijians star first five eight said this is all about growing the game in the right man­ner.

“This event is all about taking the grassroot rugby clinic to another un­fortunate area,” he said.

“For us, our approach has always been a Family Fun Day where we can come and enjoy each other’s company.

“In Ba, these kids don’t have access to such a programme like this.”

Bai acknowledged Milo for spon­soring the programme especially for the community clinic and without Milo’s support it would be impossi­ble.

Nestlé (Fiji) PTE Limited Fiji Mar­keting Brand Activation manager Monisha Prasad said their partner­ship began in 2018.

“Tag rugby is not a contact sport and is beneficial for kaji boys and girls. It is a Milo powered rugby fes­tival,” she said.

“This is the first time it has come to Ba and marks the final stop for 2022.

“To date Milo has given away packs to 10,000 kids through the grassroots community.”

A parent, Jone Sito, who took a group of children to the event said:

“I thank Milo and the Rugby Acad­emy for branching out to Ba in their mission to grow the game.

“We all know that Ba is well known for football but it has produced some top rugby players over the years,” he said.
