Schools Visits and Rugby League Clinics to Precede Storm vs Knights Game

School visits and rugby league clinics will be part of the lead up to the Melbourne Storm match against Newcastle Knights on February 24 in Lautoka.

Storm captain and Fiji Bati’s Tui Kamikamica will be taking several players to his village of Somosomo on Taveuni island.

Kamikamica says this a huge boost for the game of rugby league in Fiji.

“This is a very proud moment for our country. I hope it gives more kids the inspiration to play rugby league and maybe play for the Storm one day.”

The team’s website states Fiji Airways will fly Kamikamica and his teammates to his home island of Taveuni, where they will meet with students and the local community.

“Storm fans will be able to watch the team train at Churchill Park on Wednesday afternoon, while coaches from local rugby league clubs will be given the opportunity to learn from Storm’s coaching staff in an exclusive clinic. Players will also visit local primary and secondary schools throughout the week as the team prepares for the first ever NRL match to be played in Fiji.”

Fiji National Rugby League CEO, Don Natabe, said having Storm play in Fiji will be a great boost for the sport in 2024.

“The rugby league community is excited about having the Storm and Knights come to Fiji, All of Fiji is excited about having Storm and the Knights play this trial match and I can’t wait to see the kids and families at the match and the clinics,” Natabe said.
