According to S.S.A.B’s C.E.O./President, Tofilau Fiti Leung Wai, “S.S.A.B. has been the main sponsor for the Roosters for the past several years and is happy to continue that support. I also thank the coaches and management team of the Roosters for volunteering their time to develop sports amongst our youth.”
Morale and confidence within the Roosters rugby team has been boosted with the addition of Afa Lesa, Roger Warren and Sapani Pomare to their coaching staff. The additional help is timely given the Roosters move to play at Apia Rugby Union.
