In a continuing homage to a fallen teammate who suffered a fatal injury in 2010, members of the Miami Rugby Football Club will remember Phillippe â€œFijiâ€ Leka at a pre-game reception and benefit rally at the World Erotic Art MuseumÂ (WEAM). Leka was born and raised on the Island of Fiji where rugby is the national sport. The 6â€™2 â€œFijiâ€ played for Miami Rugby from 2001-2008 and then moved to Milwaukee to be with his wifeâ€™s family and await the birth of his child. It was during a game with the Milwaukee Harlequins that â€œFijiâ€ suffered a broken neck, leaving behind his wife Liliana Richard and daughter Xyella who is now four years old. Meet his fellow rugby players, pose for pictures with the team and share a Stout in memory of the popular player for whom an award was created in his honor to be awarded to players who go above and beyond for their rugby â€œfamily.â€ Admission is a donation of $15 which will go to the Fiji family.
