Rugby League has recently seen a growing interest in the sport across the island, especially amongst the younger generation. In essence of developing young talent in the sport, the Niue Rugby League Association have been conducting after school training for some of the young primary school children.
BCN News understands that this is the first year they have held an after-school training program for the primary school children.
In a recent social media post by the Niue Rugby League Association stated “development and player safety is a must for our kids to help grow Rugby League in Niue.”
Supporting the efforts of developing rugby league for the young children, the association received 30 new junior mouth guards earlier this week gifted by Fana Cafe owners Chris Skinner, his partner Roz and the team.
Two head gears were also sponsored by Wayne Boyes and Niko Levi in New Zealand.
The Niue Rugby League association expressed their heartfelt gratitude for the support and stated “this is just a start for our young ones so we will keep you posted for their first official game.”
Meanwhile, the Motu vs Tafiti third and final rugby league tournament was meant to take place last Saturday but has been postponed until further notice.
