The boys have done it again! Outrigger on the Lagoon · Fiji Nadroga Stallions have retained the Digicel Cup beating Fiji Bitter Suva 21-12 in a nail biting encounter. And what an added boost for the team, with a massive $20,000 bonus payment from the resort for their outstanding win.
Resort staff and guests were out in numbers to support the boys who were confident of a win in what was the clash of the season. Guests were seen sitting on the edge of their seats cheering on the mighty Stallions, watching as one guest mentioned, “world class Fijian rugby for a fraction of the price!”
At every home game at Lawaqa park, the resort offers game packages for its guests which include transfers to the game, VIP marquee access, welcome drink on arrival, access to the club lounge and BBQ facilities. A percentage of the game proceeds are donated to the Nadroga Stallions.
Outrigger on the Lagoon · Fiji General Manager was over the moon with the Stallions win saying he had no doubt the boys would retain the Digicel cup.
“Our champion Stallions displayed yet another sterling performance against a determined Suva team. This win has boosted the moral of our Outrigger vuvale (family) who are so passionate about their team and rugby!” Mr. Hopgood stated.
“We are also so excited to have been able to share this win with our guests who rallied behind our boys and thoroughly enjoyed the whole Fijian Saturday rugby atmosphere”, Mr. Hopgood continued.
“Outrigger Fiji is very proud to be the naming sponsors of the Stallions who are a true champion team that espouse our resort values of team work, hard work and commitment. We congratulate the management and the Nadroga Stallions for being honorable ambassadors of our province!” Mr. Hopgood added.
