NEW Zealand sevens general Tomasi Cama is helping the Pacific Warriors side and the Lomaiviti Barbarians but did not play.

He revealed that like the Fiji sevens team players he has been told to stay off-field ahead of the IRB Sevens World Series next leg.

"We have camp next week so I can't play," Cama Junior said.

The Warriors were edged by the Etuate Waqa-coached Tonga Aoniu 19-14.

"We took some wrong options and that was it," Cama said but added that they would try and hit back today.

Police, featuring Peni Gaunimeke, Pio Tuwai's Tokatoka Babas, the Aussie Thunderbolts, Red Rock and Davetalevu are the teams to watch entering the second day's play at the Coral Coast Sevens.

"Awesome," was how tournament chairman and Sigatoka River Safari managing director Jay White described the first day's play.

Former Fiji sevens pivot Gaunimeke was in fine form playing alonbgside other big names Sakenasa Aca, Situveni Waqa and Waisale Dau.

There was a good crowd yesterday and the tournament is well organised with the media centre being the best seen in any tournament.

It's no wonder why Jonah Lomu, the top try scorer in World Cup history, sees this tournament getting "bigger and better each year".

Day One results:

Pool A: Wardens Gold 12 Red Rock II 0; Naviti 17 Sunnybank 5; Wardens Gold 12 Naviti 12.

Pool B: Aussie Thunderbolts 31 Sigatoka River Safari Navosa 5; Hideaway Hurrucanes 19 Auckland Marist 17; Aussie Thunderbolts 22 Hideaway Hurricanes 17.

Pool C: Tonga Aoniu 19 Pacific Warriors 14; Davetalevu 19 Warwick 5; Tonga 24 Warwick 10.

Pool D: Wardens Green 20 Yamacia 12; Tokatoka 33 Navy 0; Tokatoka 21 Yamnacia 7;

Pool E: Hydro 22 Dritabua 12; Red Rock 31 Nabua 7; Red Rock 33 Dritabua 12;

Pool F: Police 19 Outrigger 14; Serevi Select 17 Lomaiviti Barbarians 14; Serevi Select 26 Outrigger 12.
