Civoniceva says he contacted Rabuka in 2020, out of respect to his connection to Rugby League and asked him what our Ron Massey Cup side should be called.

The Prime Minister informed Civoniceva the team should be known as the Silktails because the bird is from Vanua Levu where both Rabuka and the NRL great hails from.

The Silktails will play eight home games in Fiji this year.
