There’s another setback at this year’s Milo Kaji rugby tournament in Nadi.
Organisers have been forced to delay the tournament again after the hired ambulance service has yet to turn up at Prince Charles Park.
Milo Kaji rugby president, Joji Seruiratu says for safety practices, until an ambulance arrives, the games will be on hold.
“At the moment we’re still waiting, the games can’t start because we don’t have any ambulance. We made a deal with those in Suva and they made an arrangements with the ambulance in Nadi but when we arrived in Nadi, the ambulance here is in the garage. So we have to sort that out before the games start."
Organisers are paying the ambulance service up to five hundred dollars a day for the next three days to be on standby during the games.
The earlier delay today was the late arrival of team Koro – while late lastnight, organizers had to reorganize the draws after Bua and Namosi pulled out of the tournament due to financial constraints.
