You failed to mention Lagi Setu and Jordan Rapana, both of whom have given up Professional Rugby contracts to serve Missions in the England Birmingham Mission. Elder Setu is still serving, after leaving the "Brisbane Broncos." Jordan Rapana gave up his contract with the "old Coast Titans" for a Mission, has completed that, and is now playing professionally for the "Western Force"in Australia.

Both were great players, and both have been very successful Missionaries.

Kudos to these young men, and a fine young man I met over the weekend who is very instrumental in building youth rugby in Utah: Matt Wunderli, All-American played at UofU. Matt has helped coordinate this tournament, build the youth leagues in Utah, worked to publicize the Uruguay v Eagles game a couple of years ago at Rio Tinto, coaches the Skyline team. Unsung heroes abound in Rugby...congrats to all the players at this tournament, thanks to Matt and the others who are making a difference in these young men's lives.
