Touch rugby competition to start in Nadi

EFFORT'S are being made to establish the Nadi Touch Rugby Association, a sport popular in the Eastern Division.

The Trans Pacific Touch Tournament was organised by the Fiji Touch Association in Nadi last year in a bid to promote the sport out West.

Trevor Cleary, a former University of the South Pacific rep, is the brains behind the establishment of the touch rugby body in the Jetset Town.

Cleary said touch rugby was big in Suva with overwhelming support from business houses.

"It is a family sport," he said.

"The aim is to start a competition in Nadi and hope that it spreads to the other major districts in the West. Sponsorship will be vital for its growth."

Cleary is helping Nadi-based women's 7s club Ranadi prepare for the Fiji Bitter Marist 7s.
