LAUTOKA rep Kelemedi Bola guided the Western Suburbs team to victory during the Gaunavou 7s tournament at the Ba Market ground yesterday.

Western Suburbs defeated Natabua 25-20 in an exciting final.

Natabua had the services of Leone Nawalu and brothers, Sunia and Peceli Talebula.

Western Suburbs led 15-10 at halftime. In the semi-finals, Western Suburbs accounted for Lomavata while Natabua defeated Mala Young Boys.

Gaunavou Rugby Club president Joji Tuivaga said more than 300 fans watched the tournament. Tuivaga said there was no Plate and Bowl competitions.

"The idea to stage this tournament is for the development of the sport," he said.

"We want to increase the interest. Next week we will be holding a bigger tournament in Lautoka. It is known as the Lomavata 7s. The total prizemoney is $5000. We expect all the top clubs to enter."

Entry fee for the Lomavata 7s is $400.
