In preparation for the BARLA Unison 2009 South Pacific Tour, the hosting nations are sending regular updates from their country.

Following is a message received from; Tuilagi Maiava S Esera at Event Polynesia




LEAGUE SAMOA 2009 EVENTS CALENDAR LAUNCH

PNGRL KUMULS TOUR – ‘SAMOATEL INTERNATIONAL LEAGUE SERIES’


Rugby League Samoa today launched its 2009 Events Calendar. This years Calendar will be the busiest and most dynamic calendar of events ever for Rugby League Samoa including 3 home internationals and two overseas campaigns. The 2009 Toa Samoa Campaign will kick off with the PNG Rugby League visit to Samoa for a one off international between the Kumuls and the Toa Samoa.


The series is called ‘SamoaTel International League Series’ and both unions are looking at this being an annual series between the two teams to help develop its local players. Fiji Rugby League has also shown interest and will be traveling to Samoa at the end of their domestic season also for a one off test end of July. RLS earnestly await the arrival of the Cinderella’s of the recent Rugby League World Cup and we should be prepared for the Batis visits come July.


Mark Williams, SamoaTel’s General Manager for Business and Consumers quoted that, “SamoaTel is delighted to be the Major Sponsor and is committed to Samoa Rugby League and supports the development of league in Samoa through sponsoring this inaugural international series in Samoa.”



According to RLS Secretary General – Fritz Tuiavii – ‘The Kumuls tour not only will this be their first visit to Samoa with its full-fledged international rugby league side, but this game also marks Rugby League Samoa opening the international sporting calendar of events for 2009’. RLS acknowledges its thanks to the PNG Rugby League for their support to undertake this tour of Samoa to kick start what promises to be Rugby League Samoa’s busiest events year to date


The rest of Rugby League Samoas Events Calendar includes a visit to Samoa by the BARLA Rugby League Team in mid June. BARLA is England’s representative amateur side of their Rugby Football League Union. According to RLS commercial agents Event Polynesia, the BARLA tour of the PI starting its first leg here in Samoa has the potential of bringing the biggest supporters group that our country has ever seen in any event let alone a sporting event. British sports teams including soccer, rugby and typified by league at the recent RLWC again was dominated by rugby league fans that traveled all the way from England to support their team. Samoa had then better be ready for a busy June filled with British rugby league fans.



The rest of the program includes Toa Samoa competing in mid September at the Mini Pacific Games in the Cook Islands with the year capping up with the much anticipated Rugby League Pacific Cup competed amongst the PI rugby league powers Fiji, Tonga, PNG and Samoa. This years Pacific Cup will be the most exciting and will be fiercely competed as for the first time, the winner has now been accepted to be included in the biggest rugby league tournament outside the RLWC. This will be the RLIFs upscaled Triangular Series now called the – ‘Quadrangular Nations Series’ with England, Australia Kangaroos and 2008 world champions - the New Zealand Kiwis. The Quadrangular will be competed in 2010 with the venue currently been finalised.

According to RLS President Mr. Peter Paul, ‘The International between Toa Samoa vs. the PNG Kumuls will be highlighting the local players. It will be a big test for RLS as the PNGRL has a very experienced and strong local rugby league history’. A training squad of 40 started working out yesterday under the watchful eye of Conditioning Coach Leapai Richard Brown awaiting the arrival from the UK of interim Coach Lauaki Fred Tuilagi this weekend. Leapai is a retired 14 year NFL veteran and has contributed also to the Samoan rugby union training its age grade teams, the Samoa 7s and was the trainer for the inaugural Pacific Rugby Cup winners – Savaii Samoa. Taulealealea Laavasa and Tofila Henry round up the management team


Rugby League Samoa would like to thank SamoaTel for their great support to enable the hosting of the Kumuls and especially the vision to spearhead this annual ‘SAMOATEL INTERNATIONAL LEAGUE SERIES’

Have just seen video of a major underwater volcanic eruption off the coast of Tonga and also heard, on the News, warnings of a possible tsunami expected to hit the South Pacific Islands included in the forthcoming tour ... I hope and pray that, if it does happen, it is of a much smaller scale than the Boxing Day event which hit Indonesia and surrounding areas and caused so many losses. Let's hope we learnt from that tragedy and that people this time heed the advance warnings.

Makes you realise sometimes just how lucky we are here in the UK without such devastating events threatening us.
