THE 2013 Fiji Bitter Nawaka 7s tournament has been shifted to March, a week later than initially scheduled.

The tournament was to be have been played from February 22-23 but has been rescheduled after confirmation that another event booked earlier at Prince Charles Park has been moved to the Capital.

Organising committee member Mataiasi Nabau said the new date for the tournament was March 1-2 after they were cleared by the Nadi Town Council.

The same dates were penned by the Marist Club for the 2013 Marist 7s tournament.

"The organisers of the Marist 7s have now decided to hold the tournament at the newly refurbished ANZ Stadium in Suva," Nabau said.

"As a result we have moved our tournament forward by a week.

"The response from clubs around the country is slow.

"But we are expecting to finalise the 64 teams for the Open division and 16 teams for the Under-18 grade a few days before the tournament."

Entry fees for the Nawaka 7s are $450 for the Open division and $250 for the U-19 grade.
