THE champion Westfield Babas sevens club team will tour Australia in October.
This was confirmed to Times Sport by club president Ponijese Rayasi. The club, which scooped the Vatukoula and Nawaka Sevens titles, this season have been invited to be part of the 2012 Central Coast 7s tournament in Sydney.
Westfield is one of the overseas teams invited to be part of the tournament where 16 men's teams are vying to be crowned champions. At stake is the 2012 Fitness First CC7s Cup and $36,000 prize money.
Uprising 7s champions Wardens have also being invited.
Rayasi said they wanted to expose their young talented ruggers to international tournaments.
"We have been competing in all local tournaments and this Australian tour will be our first overseas outing," he said.
The team is laced with experienced players like former sevens skipper Watisoni Votu, Pio Tuwai, Aporosa Tabulawaki, Meli Saukuru and rising star Filipe Nakosi who is Tuwai's younger sibling.
Rayasi said the club was established last year.
"The Coral Coast Sevens was our first tournament and it was there that the Central Coast officials approached us if we could come to their tournament next year (this year October). We are delighted about it since this will be a huge break for the young boys," Rayasi said.
The men's teams will be drawn into four pools of four teams with winners of each pool advancing to the main cup semi finals. Pool runners up will qualify for the plate semi finals, third place finishers will compete in the Boost Juice Ball Division semis and fourth will contest the Peak Sports Boost Division.
Rayasi added they had to be at their best to excel at the CC7s. The CC7s is scheduled on October 27.
