A son of Saleaula, Soatama Tulagaese Semau Tavita, has returned to Savai’i to present rugby uniforms for his village’s team.
The uniform was valued at $13,000.
“For each player they get rugby jerseys and shorts, polo t-shirts and warm up t-shirts,” said Mase Mahonri Schwalger, another son of Saleaula.
He said the uniforms were presented during a ceremony at the Bayview Resort at Saleaula, Savai’i earlier this week.
“Soatama Tulagaese Semau Tavita is from Sri Lanka and he’s a son of Saleaula hence the presentation made to their village rugby team.”
