SCNZ coach, Earl Va'a said the tournament was the first championship for the team in Malaysia and, for most of them, it was also their first visit here.
"I think for us, rugby is secondary. The first goal to come here is to make sure the boys make a lot of friends from among the Malaysian community and the Asian teams like Hong Kong and Singapore. That is the main thing for us," he said after the tournament.....
