The Kaiviti Silktails – Pacific Pioneers!


The Kaiviti Silktails – Pacific Pioneers!



Toso Viti! I was invited to speak to the Fijian Kaiviti Silktails on their place in rugby league history. What I got in return was a deeply spiritual & emotional experience that I will forever be grateful for.

My story on the Singing Silktails for Chasing Roos website which documents a joyous afternoon that included introducing original late 1960’s St George Dragons pioneer Pastor Inosi Toga to the team and linking him up with later Fijian stars Petero Civoniceva & coach Wes Naiqama.
