TOP local clubs at the Great Eight 7s tournament are one step away from qualifying for the Bayleys Fiji Coral Coast 7s.
Police, Wardens Gold, Army, Tokatoka Westfield Babas and Ratu Filise won their respective pools and are favourites to win their elimination matches this morning.
Other clubs that have qualified for the eliminations include Dritabua, Mango Bay Naboutini, Seniboro and Lomaiviti Babas.
Only teams that qualify to the quarter-finals will be given spots at the premier 7s on November 14 to 16.
Wardens Gold looked in good form despite missing the services of its star players such as Ilai Tinai, Levani Botia and Joji Ragamate. Wardens coach Max Hughes said his new players such as Setefano Rasekaia and Sevuloni Rakula had stood up to the test.
"We just want to reach the quarter-finals so we can qualify for the Coral Cost 7s," he said.
"That's our primary goal. Tomorrow (today) is another day so we'll just have to lift our performance to another level."
