Wakehurst Rugby U14 Fiji Tour 2024

Wakehurst Rugby Club has a history of touring and in September 2024 our U14 playing group intend to restart that history with a tour to Fiji.

This will be an amazing opportunity for the players and families involved and is founded on these principles:

  • A collective belief that Rugby is fun.
  • A pathway to maintain friendships established through Wakehurst Rugby Club.
  • To create memories and stories to recall in their later years.
  • To experience different levels of Rugby, including overseas.
  • An opportunity to experience Fijian culture.

Club legends Gareth “Bladesie” Blades and Michael Gullick have led multiple tours to Fiji in the Wakehurst colours and will also be guiding the 2024 U14’s.

On the ground in Fiji, a key member of the Tour will be Bill Dawai. Over the past ten years, Bill has become a close friend of our club and will be staying with us throughout our tour. Several of the activities that we will be doing involve members of Bill’s family and his village.

Another important member of our Fijian family was Peceli Kina. Kina (as he liked to be called) was a former Fijian International player who also played for Warringah in the late 1980’s and was involved in every tour we ran from 2005 to 2019. Sadly, Kina passed away last year after a short illness, but our club still has a very close relationship with his family, and they will also be in involved in various parts of this year’s tour.

We are still raising money to help fund our U14’s tour to Fiji. Monies raised will also go toward purchasing rugby kits, clothing, and stationery to donate to the Fijian villages we visit.

At the moment we have a Trivia Night coming up (in June) and our Raffle Competition will be underway soon…

Fiji Tour Fundraising

You may see some of the U14 team selling Raffle Tickets in and around the area. Please support them by buying a ticket or two!

Tickets go on sale on 1st May, 2024. They cost $5 each (please note, there are no special offers i.e. no 3 for $10, etc).

Fancy joining us for a night of trivia fun? Show your support for our team and bag a ticket for a GUARANTEED evening jam packed with entertainment…

In addition to the trivia, we have auctions, games, music, and maybe even a few special cocktails in the mix! Please note this event is for 18+ only.


We believe there is a great opportunity to offer local businesses valuable brand promotion, recognition, and access to our local community families, while at the same time helping our families send their children on their 1st International Rugby Tour that includes an incredible cultural and educational opportunity.

If you believe your business would benefit from being involved with the Under 14 2024 Fiji Tour, please contact:
Marcus Stock, our Sponsorship Coordinator, M. 0425 333 445 or E. vp-touch@wakehurst.rugby

Other Events

The U14 team has been involved in many fundraising events over the last few months. We held a Doggy Day Out before Christmas, and the team has been busy selling Meat Tray Raffle Tickets at the Belrose Hotel on Thursday nights.

We still have a handful of opportunities to fundraise. Up and coming events include:

  • WRC Parents Trivia Night – FIND OUT MORE >
  • Canteen & BBQ Operations at our Junior Comp home games.
  • Clubhouse Events – State of Origin and after training dinners.

We’d love your support of the tour players to help give everyone involved the best experience on this 2024 Fiji Tour. Monies raised also goes toward purchasing rugby kits, clothing and stationery to donate to the Fijian villages we visit whilst on tour.
