The inaugural Faleata Region Nines is set to take place this Saturday, June 19 at ACP Marist St Joseph’s Stadium.
The tournament, which is a collaboration between Rugby League Samoa and the Faleata Rugby Union, will be the first time a competition has been created specifically for the Faleata Region on the Island of Upolu.
Marist St Josephs, Alfau Raiders, Taufusi Eels, Lepea Village, Malie Sharks, Tunani Springboks, Falelauniu Storm and the Vailoa Broncos will be the eight teams that take part in the one day tournament.
