Our Hooker Siua Maile will start for Tonga against the All Blacks this weekend on his test debut, capping a meteoric rise for the Christchurch-based roofer, who is yet to play a first class match.
We are raising funds for Siua to support him while he plays rugby for Tonga!
Some background on why we are raising funds for Siua Maile
Firstly Siua is a top bloke with a young family including a new born. A truly loyal Viking.
Siua has now been off work for 2 weeks and is likely to be off for at least another 5-6 weeks.
While Siua has very good employer who is leaving his job open for him, he will be without pay throughout this period and will only receive minimal weekly allowance while away from home.
To date we have been able to support family to go and watch him play against the All Blacks.
Further funds will go towards ongoing day to day living expenses for his family while he is away – rent, groceries, power etc.
Thank you for your interest and support.
