THREE news teams have pledged their allegiance to the Serua Rugby Union club competition this season.

Deuba-based Pearl, Police and the Navulivatu rugby club teams are the new inclusion for the minnows.

SRU now have more than 15 affiliated rugby clubs. SRU treasurer Ilimi Vudiniabola said they hoped the inclusion of new teams would uplift the standard of rugby within the union.

Vudiniabola said they had seen vast improvement from club teams during the last 10s tournament which was held in Navua last month.

"We have new teams joining our club competition this season. I believe this is a huge boost to our club competition as we try our best to improve from last season," Vudianiabola said.

Meanwhile SRU has organsied another 10s rugby tournament tomorrow to set the momentum prior to the start of its club competition next week.

"We will be having a rugby 10s tournament on Saturday in Navua. We want to test the teams and give them a chance to fare and gauge the other teams prior to the start of the season."

"Next week we will be having our club 15s competition so this is going to set the platform for the respective clubs as we build up to the season," Vudianiabola said.

He added the new teams would be a force to be reckoned with.

The SRU rugby 10s tournament kicks off at 8am tomorrow.
