Celebrating the Great Rugby Bond: Fiji and Australia Unite during ‘Vuvale Week’

Fijian rugby legends and former Wallabies Lote Tuqiri and Radike Samo are in the country this week hosting rugby clinics across the Fiji as part of ‘vuvale week’ in celebration of the sporting ties between the Fiji Rugby Union and Rugby Australia.

The week-long celebration which started yesterday also features Queensland Reds’ Joana Rabaka and Isaac Henry, along with FRU staff, who will be visiting schools in Vanua Levu where construction continues to repair damages caused by tropical cyclones Yasa and Ana.

“Vuvale Week promises to be an extraordinary experience; we look forward to celebrating the fantastic sporting bonds between Fiji and Australia and giving children across Fiji an opportunity to meet their Rugby heroes from Australia and Fiji,” said FRU Chairperson Peter Mazey.

Vuvale week will close with a family fun afternoon event on Friday, 2 June, at Albert Park in Suva. The event will be open to the public, free of charge, an event that attendees can look forward to live music, bouncy castles, and various forms of entertainment.

Rugby sessions for children will also be conducted, allowing them to learn from and interact with players from the Fijian Drua and Queensland Reds teams.

Support for Vuvale Week comes from the Australian Government’s PacificAus Sports program.
