DEVELOPMENT of the abbreviated code is the main purpose behind the staging of the Gaunavou 7s in Ba tomorrow.

Despite not attracting top 7s clubs, the organisers have vowed to carry on with the one day event.

Tournament co-ordinator Timoci Driu said they wanted to raise the profile of 7s rugby in the district.

Driu said the winner of the tournament would receive $1000.

"The well-known clubs have opted to participate in the Uluinakau 7s in Nausori," he said.

"But we are content with the clubs that have registered for our tournament. There are teams from Lautoka, Ba, Tavua and Vatukoula.

"This is the second time that we are staging this tournament. It is all about development and giving the players game time. We are also looking for sponsors."

Matawalu and KBL Lions have entered from Lautoka. Sorokoba will lead the home charge. Senibiau is the club to look out for from Tavua while Lomavata is the Vatukoula favourite.

The Gaunavou 7s will be played at the Ba Market ground.
