Fui Auctions his Boot for Tongan Rugby League

Although living in Australia, with a longstanding affiliation with the Pirtek Parramatta Eels, prop Fuifui Moimoi has never stopped thinking of his homeland Vavau in the kingdom of Tonga.


This October more than 200 Tongan primary school boys will compete for the Fuifui Moimoi Primary Shield; however it will be the first time Fui will be in attendance to support the spirited players and award the post-match awards.





The second annual competition in 2012 saw more than 160 boys competing from seven local schools, with G.P.S. Liviela taking home the Shield, and Sevan Guttenbiel winning the Fuifui Moimoi medal.


The awards are a recognition of the competitive spirit of the children of Vava'u as well as a tribute to their hometown hero.


This year Fui will be assisting in the running of rugby league coaching clinics for the school children to develop their skills and advance the game of rugby league.


Fui is excited to be returning home, so much so that he is partaking in a charity auction to help the children by donating a special edition 2013 signed memorabilia frame with photographs and one of Fuis most treasured possessions; a signed boot.

The Fuifui Moimoi Primary Shield will be held in October in the village Mataika. The auction is expected to not only raise much needed funds, but to also raise the spirit of rugby league among the future generation of players.
