It’s no secret, Samoan Rugby is in the rebuilding stage.

As the players continue to put their bodies on the line for the country, businesses in Samoa have stepped in to help on the financial side.  

Last  week the Samoa Rugby Union accepted two vital donations from local businesses.

J&F Enterprises donated $10,000  to the Samoa Rugby Union.  

The donation will be allocated toward operational costs for the S.R.U.

Owner, Jack Huang  presented the donation  to Samoa A’s head coach, Mailo Potu.

Mailo deeply expressed his gratitude to Mr. Huang and his company for continuing to support Samoan rugby.  

Apia Concrete Products donation of $5,000 went to the Samoa U20’s Programme for their World Cup Campaign in Tblisi, Georgia.

The 28-man team is led by Head Coach, Fa’aofo Junior Leota.  

The team is currently preparing to depart for Oceania.   

From there the team will make their way to Tblisis, Georgia to compete against the top U20’s players from elite teams around the world.

Faleomavega expressed his deep appreciation to Apia Concrete Products who have helped the Samoa Rugby Union time and time again.
