Former Gloucester Rugby star and Samoan international was the driving force behind the Legends Charity Match which took place at Kingsholm after the Newcastle match. Junior passed on his thanks to all involved by email.
Junior contacted Gloucester Rugby Community Manager Gary Little with the following message.
"Sorry for the delay in getting in touch with you. We've had quite an eventful last few days, our people carrier that broke down on our way up there is still in Gloucester being fixed (hopefully) and so we taxi'd home!"
"Our electricity here has been off for the day thus putting everything back as you can imagine. Anyway all shall be better, hopefully!"
"We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to yourself, the Gloucester Rugby Club, and to everyone that helped us with this fundraiser. We have been overwhelmed by the awesome generosity, support and kindness shown by all.
"We raised £3207, which in Samoan currency is nearly $13,000 tala. It's an amazing amount which we are truly grateful for."
"I myself very much appreciated being back at Kingsholm in the weekend, and I enjoyed the whole experience."
"Seeing the awesome new stadium, attending the Heritage Celebrations, meeting up with some of the old legends of the club, and to finally run on Kingsholm once again was fantastic!!"
"Dream stuff that was! And to raise funds for my beloved country.... truly grateful!!"
"Thanks again Gary for all your help, even more so for taking the bucket around!!!"
Gloucester Rugby face Exeter Chiefs this Saturday in the European Rugby Challenge Cup semi-final, and Charlie Sharples, who starts at full back is relishing the challenge of the big Kingsholm occasion.
Gloucester meet the Exeter Chiefs for the fourth time in competitive action this weekend, this time in the semi-final of the European Rugby Challenge Cup. Director of Rugby David Humphreys told the local media this week that this is the sort of game that Gloucester want to be involved in on a regular basis and that he and his team are looking forward to it.
Following the 29-26 loss to Harlequins, club captain Billy Twelvetrees spoke of his disappointment that the Cherry and Whites were unable to cash in on the home side's indiscipline and lose a lead on Saturday afternoon.
Number eight Gareth Evans admitted to a collective feeling of frustration as Gloucester lost narrowly at Harlequins on Saturday, but insisted that there are plenty of positives to draw upon ahead of next Saturday's European Rugby Challenge Cup semi-final at home to Exeter.
Gloucester travel to the Stoop on Saturday afternoon to take on Harlequins in the Aviva Premiership. The Cherry and Whites make just two changes from last weekend's win over Connacht as they seek consistency and continuity in their play as Nick Walshe told the local media this week.
Supporters who are still to purchase tickets for Saturday's European Rugby Challenge Cup semi-final at home to Exeter Chiefs at Kingsholm (kick off 7:45pm) are reminded that Early Bird prices are only valid until 6:30pm on Thursday evening.
The Gloucester Wheelchair Rugby team travelled to Fenton Manor Complex, Stoke on Trent last Saturday to take part in the final round of the GBWR Super Series of the season, knowing just one win would be enough to crown them Division 3 Champions.
