Draw change for Ba 7s event

Maciu Malo
Friday, January 24, 2014

ORGANISERS of the Gaunavou 7s tournament in Ba have been forced to re-draw their pool games schedule due to the overwhelming club response.

The tournament has received a total of 38 teams compared to the targeted 35 teams earlier planned for the competition.

Tournament official Joji Tuivaga said the response from the clubs had been great despite the unavailability of 7s giants such as Yamacia, Red Rock, Davetalevu and Westfield Babarians to name a few.

He said many new teams had shown interest in being part of the competition.

Tuivaga said new talents had been exposed during the past three tournaments and many more new players were expected to shine this weekend in Ba.

"We have to re-draw our game schedules to accommodate the extra three teams wanting to be part of the tournament," he said.

"We wanted only 35 teams but we have so far received 38 confirmations for the tournament.

"We are hopeful of seeing new talents from some unknown teams in Ba and Lautoka this weekend."

Tuivaga said top teams that are likely to walk away with the $1000 top prize money are Natabua, Western Suburbs of Lautoka and Nadi's Tale Babas.

The competition will be held at Ba's market ground tomorrow.

Tokatoka Westfield Barbarians won the first tournament last year.
