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!!!"

Reflecting on the 31-20 victory in Brive on Thursday evening, Director of Rugby David Humphreys said that clinching a home European Rugby Challenge Cup quarter-final was the overall aim and duly achieved.
