THE Nawaka Rugby Club will organise a mini 7s tournament at the Airports Fiji Limited ground in Namaka next Friday in the build-up to the Fiji Bitter Nawaka 7s next month.
The mini 7s tournament will feature the top clubs in Nadi including defending Nawaka 7s champion Westfield Tokatoka Resort Barbarians.
NRC president Mataisi Nabau said they expected over 20 teams for the mini 7s tournament.
He said the idea was to give the teams some game time.
"The number of quality 7s tournaments organised in the country has dropped significantly," Nabau said.
"By organising the mini 7s tournament we will give the clubs more game time. The players will be able to build their combinations and fitness level. This is all in the lead up to the Fiji Bitter Nawaka 7s tournament."
