The government of Samoa has once again showed their commitment towards the development of grass root level rugby in the country. 

To show their support, through the Samoa Sportslotto & T.A.B, a donation of $100,000 was presented to the Samoa Rugby Union on 20 September 2017. 

The donation was also part of the sponsorship towards the successful super 9’s which has just concluded. 

The cheque was presented by the C.E.O. of the Gambling Control Authority, Tuala-Tamaalelagi S. Tuala II, to the C.E.O. of the Samoa Rugby Union, Faleomavaega Vincent Fepuleai.

Tuala-Tamaalelagi also took the opportunity to thank Samoa Sportslottos loyal customers for their support which made the contribution to the development of sports in the country possible.

Faleomavaega received the cheque on behalf of the S.R.U. and thanked Samoa Sportslotto/T.A.B. for their generous donation and long standing and valuable financial support to the Samoa Rugby Union and the development of rugby in Samoa.
