Sport: Samoa rugby receive a monetary boost

1:44 pm on 10 June 2013

The Samoa Rugby Union has received a more than 435,000 US dollar boost.

In a dual handing over ceremony Samoa International Finance Authority and BlueSky each gave over 200,000 US dollars each.

SRF president Tuiloma Pule Lameko thanked both organisations for the donations but he lamented the union was still far short of the amount needed to get teams ready for regional and international competitions.

Talamua online quotes Tuiloma saying some 2.6 million US dollars upwards a year would be closer to the mark.
