Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama made these comments while officiating at the event yesterday.

PM Bainimarama said rugby has never been stronger or more popular in Fiji than now just because of the thousands of  Fijians whose hearts beat strongly with a love of rugby.

He also said because of our young people who dream of eventually representing Lomaiviti and perhaps even Fiji and attribute those coaches and trainers who devote many hours to passing on their skills to each generation.

PM Bainimarama reminded those present at the event to be good role models to set an example in two very important areas of national life which is building one nation and treating our women and children with consideration, love and respect.

BAINIMARAMA: “We must remain united above all else as we build a better Fiji. We must drown out the voices of division those who seek to trigger or exploit suspicion and hatred against our fellow citizens because we can only achieve greatness as a nation by working together in the same way as a rugby team attains greatness.”

The Prime Minister asked people to think carefully about what he has said because he can make all the speeches in the world about these issues of critical importance to our nation and none of it means anything unless he can get the people behind him.
