ASRU News Updates

15 July 2017 - Leone "Whites" did it again.  The Whites survived a very strong challenge from Avele 7s to win the Manu'a Day 7s Rugby tourney held at the Veterans Memorial Stadium today, with the score of 19-17.  Congratulations to both sides for a great Championship game.  Well done.

15 July 2017 - Great rugby 7s action at Veterans Memorial Stadium today in celebration of the "Manu'a Day", commemorating the signing of the Manu'a Deed of Cession with the United States of America.  On the pitch, the ASRU welcome back the Fagaalu 7s rugby team along with the Aua "All Blacks" and Fagatogo "Blues".  Although the day seemed doomed by heavy rain at 6:00 in the early morning, it turned out to be a great day for rugby 7s.  (See results posted in Fixtures & Results)

 

4 July 2017:   ASRU has embarked on monthly Rugby 7s tournament to prepare for the upcoming Oceania 7s Championships November 10-11, 2017 in Suva, Fiji, and the Pacific Mini Games in Vanuatu following in the month of December 2017.

We are seeing a resurgence of ole talents in the past two tournaments, as well as new and young players.  We have also witnessed watched with great interest the participation of former New England Patriots running back, Joe Iosefa.  He was quite impressive in rugby colors of the Laulii "Molioleava"

 

This year marks the entry of our newest Club Member, the "MOAMOANIUA" Rugby Club from the hamlet of Sa'ilele, Eastern District.  It should be very interesting.

 

ALL INTERESTED in trying out for the "TALAVALU 7s" heading to Fiji and Vanuatu later in the year, either join an active club or call us so we can arrange try out or at the very least discuss your interests.  Contact us on the following email:  rugby@asnoc.org or the Executive Secretary, Falefata Moli Lemana:  moli.asru@gmail.com
