The Wardens Rugby team to the 2016 Bayley’s Coral Coast 7s presented their i-tatau to the acting Commissioner of Corrections this morning at the Corrections Bure in Suva.

Speaking to the team and management, acting Commissioner of Corrections Kameli Ratuvakalevulevu said that this is one of the biggest rugby competitions in the country and they need to perform to the best of their abilities.

The Commissioner says he fully supports the players with their rugby careers, but he encourages them to go out into the field with weekend to bring back the flair of wardens rugby.

Since taking up the post of acting Commissioner of Corrections, I want to assure you that I will fully support the team and will assist in areas that I can. There will be scouts out there who will be watching you play and maybe you will sign contracts that will see you playing in overseas clubs.

Play hard and do not underestimate the other teams because everyone will be aiming for the grand prize. Play disciplined rugby and most of all enjoy yourselves whilst you are on the field.

Corrections Chaplain, Reverend Josefa Tikonatabua advised the players that they need to put God first in everything that they do.

Whether you are on or off the field, I advise you not to rely on your own strengths but continue to trust in God and yourselves.

Wardens team management have vowed that the boys will play their hearts out this weekend.
