FOUR former national sevens reps have been named in the Tokatoka Westfield Barbarians for the Uprising International 7s tournament this weekend.
Towering forward Pio Tuwai, Samuela Saqiwa, Dan Rawaqa and Peni Maka and former Flying Fijians looseman Apakuki Vuaviri will lead the charge for the western giant at the two-day tournament.
Tuwai and Saqiwa are regulars in the Barbarians team, helping the club win major local tournaments in the past.
Strong running Filipo Nakosi is another player that has impressed consistently for the Nadi-based club.
With the inclusion of Maka, Rawaqa and the robust Lautoka openside flanker Vuaviri, the Babas should not be left out of the equation playing Ministry of Health Wardens, FWCC Red Rock and Yamacia.
And despite having the services of the four former national reps, the Babas team camp revealed they wanted to maintain a low profile prior to the tournament.
"We had our team talk last night (Sunday) and we have decided to keep a low profile. That was what the boys wanted and we will comment later on in the week," team manager Ponijese Rayasai said.
Red Rock and Wardens have lost some of their key players who will be playing for the Fiji Barbarians and Warriors teams at the tournament.
Tokatoka Babas: Pio Tuwai, Samuela Saqiwa, Apakuki Vuaviri, Vilimoni Gadolo, Peni Maka, Setevano Rasekaiya, Asaeli Vula, Dan Rawaqa, Filipo Nakosi, Sainivalati Ramuwai, Sakiusa Naisau, Jale Seninawanawa.
