Kadavu Rugby Union Showcases Talent

It was a showcase of talent today at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka as three teams representing the Kadavu Rugby Union had a pre-season match against their counterparts from Nadroga in the Tauvu Rugby Day that was held at Lawaqa Park.

Today’s event was organized by Kadavu Rugby Union who recently returned to the FRU Vuvale, and are using this event to give their players a taste of top-flight provincial rugby against their opponents at the rugby crazy town – Sigatoka.

Kadavu Rugby Union President and Minister for Women, Children and Poverty Aliviation, Hon. Lynda Tabuya thanked all the supporters and the Nadroga Rugby Union for supporting the first ever tournament for the 3 teams from Kadavu.

She shared: “It’s a very exciting time for Kadavu and we would like to thank Nadroga for hosting us today and for graciously preparing Lawaqa Park for our teams to have their first try at Provincial Rugby.”

She added: “This is really where the competition is, and you will find that at the Vanua level, and I encourage everyone to come out and support your provincial teams when the competition starts next week.”

Kadavu has been camping out of Vunisea for the last month and are using this trip to the home of the Stallions for experience and exposure, and to learn and test their fitness levels against a team that’s playing in the tier 1 competition of provincial rugby.

Nadroga showed their brilliance at times during a tight main match that started at 3pm this afternoon, showing their tenacity and experience to calm down the new boys from Vunisea, eventually edging the visitors by 4 points at the final whistle.

The competing teams now shift their focus to the Provincial Rugby Competitions which are scheduled to start next week.

Tauvu Rugby Day results:

  • U20 – Kadavu 17 vs Nadroga 15
  • Womens – Kadavu 36 vs Nadroga 12
  • Mens – Kadavu 18 vs Nadroga 24
