DC Park is ideal for Touch Rugby at this year’s 2023 Pacific Games.
Touch Rugby Technical Delegate (TD), Ian Milne highlighted this in his brief visit to Honiara this week.
Mr Milne who was in the country to observe Games preparations and to asses DC Park (the Games venue assigned for Touch Rugby) said that he was happy with preparations he has seen in Honiara.
He said that the space that DC Park playing ground offers is sufficient and adequate for Touch Rugby competition at the Games time.
“There are three multi-used fields out there, although around the edges are probably not up to standard, the main part of the field is ideal and offers sufficient and adequate space required for Touch during Games time.
“The grass cover is really good, the fields are level, the space that we would need for two touch fields is sufficient and good,” he said.
Asked what his expectations are for the Rugby Touch at Games Time?
Milne said that he is adamant the Touch Rugby tournament at this year’s Pacific Games will be a successful one.
“What we would hope is that we have a good and successful Touch Rugby tournament and that the best team wins.”
He added, “The most important thing is that we leave a legacy after the games, something for the local Solomon Islands people to build on for the betterment of their sporting future for generations to come.”
Meanwhile also visiting Honiara was the TD for Volleyball Dean Turner.
