IN honour of their origins, the organisers of the Namarai Sevens tournament have opted to change the name of the event to Uluinakau Rugby Sevens.
The president of the committee, Epi Kolinivala, said they would not have the tournament this year but have set dates for next year.
"The name change is to signify our recognition of our roots from our village Namarai along the Nakorotubu, Ra coast to our beginnings on the summit of Mount Uluinakorotubu," he said.
The tournament had been held at their village since 2006 and was brought to Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori last year.
Kolinivala said it had contributed greatly towards the development works in their village projects and school.
"Our 7s tournament for this season will be hosted at the upgraded Ratu Cakobau Park on January 10 and 11 next year."
