Late visa delays travel

THE Red Rock 7s team departs the country today to participate in a three-week tour of Australia.

They were supposed to leave last Thursday but a delay in visa processing held them back.

Team manager Malakai Yamaivava said they were supposed to have received their visas on Friday but didn't.

"We will now go on Tuesday (today)," he said.

The team was supposed to have played in the Darwin 7s tournament over the weekend but missed out on the opportunity.

"We just had a few problems with the visa but that's sorted out now."

They will now compete in three tournaments and coach Lote Rasiga said they had taken a bunch of young boys.

He said the only one in the team who had reached the highest level was Eroni Sau who had a stint with the national sevens extended training squad.

Rasiga said they were using the overseas tour as a build-up to the Marist 7s tournament.

He thanked sponsors MH, Coca-Cola, Tau Sports, Grand Melanesian Hotel, Zaika Restaurant and Kings Neon Signs for their support for the tour.

The tour would end with the Kiama 7s tournament on February 22.
