DEFENDING champion Wardens are through to the Cup eliminations stages of the Uluinakau 7s tournament.

The side won all its games on day one yesterday beating Sigatoka Young Boys 35-0, Nadera 29-0, won by default over New Born Waibasaga and defeated Waimanu 17-0.

Yamacia and Red Rock were the other top two teams that remain unbeaten at the tournament at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori.

Army, Nasolo Young Boys, Marist and Lomaiviti Babas also advanced to the eliminations despite losses in pool games.

Tournament chairman Epi Kolinivala said they saw sevens rugby at its best yesterday with the unknown teams giving the top clubs a run for their money.

"Fitness was still a concern for some teams and the weaker teams really took the game to the bigger clubs," he said.

"Apart from that, the games are of top level, the ground was good, weather was great and the crowd enjoyed the games."

Kolinivala said today's games would be very tough for all teams.

"It will be the survival of the fittest tomorrow (today) starting from the eliminations to the finals.

"We can name any favourites because all teams look good and any team can cause upsets."

Elimination fixtures:

Wardens Gold-Nasolo Young Boys, Wardens Green-Wainuqa Red, Red Rock-Marist, Natakala Green-Army, Lomaiviti I-Wardens West, Uluinakau I-Babeez Senivaivai, Yamacia-Uluinakau III, Tabadamu-Waimanu.
