Perfect ground condition

GROUND conditions at Nadi's Prince Charles Park are in perfect condition for the Fiji Bitter Nawaka 7s tournament that will be held on Friday and Saturday.

This after serious concerns were expressed by organisers when most parts of Nadi were flooded during the heavy downpour late last week.

Nawaka Rugby Club president Mataiasi Nabau confirmed to Times Sport the play grounds would be ready for the tournament.

"The rain actually helped soften the ground a bit ahead of the tournament," he said.

"By Friday, the park will be ready for the best sevens rugby action."

He said they were expecting another successful tournament judging from the calibre of the teams that had confirmed their participation.

"Before, this tournament used to be only for the western teams but gradually teams from other divisions came.

"Now we have teams from all over Fiji and we also have a team from Vanua Levu, the Cakaudrove Warriors.

"Also the inclusion of national sevens reps in their respective clubs will boost the tournament as it will help raise the level of competition between the teams."

Nabau said they were grateful to Paradise Beverages for supporting the tournament and had asked teams to be at Prince Charles Park on time on Friday.

The draws for the tournament were done last night.
