The Ayshford's, Jurkans, Meldrum's, Stewart's, Wards visited the community's Vuda District School where they enjoyed a game of touch rugby after presenting the locals with playing jerseys gifted by the Singleton Junior Greyhounds.

THE WINNERS: The local side proved too good for the visitors in the end.

"The battle of the nations was a close game however the homeside Fiji got the win this time," Kylee Jurkans, who organised the school visit, told the Singleton Argus.

"The local children enjoyed playing as 'Little Red Dogs' and look forward to the families returning to retain their win."
