THE Red Rock 7s side is looking forward to exposing its new players to international competition at the Crescent Head 7s tournament in Australia this weekend.

The team left the country last week and is currently training at Griffith in New South Wales.

Team manager Malakai Yamaivava said most of the players were on their first trip overseas.

"For the first week, they adjusted to the weather and their surroundings," he said.

"Since it's the first time for most of them boys overseas, they have been really amazed by the infrastructure and other things there.

"But then they got back to training and are focused on the job they are there for.

"The team is preparing physcially, mentally and spiritually."

Yamaivava said the side would compete in three tournaments during the tour.

"Firstly, we have the Crescent Head 7s tournament and it will be a good exposure to international competition for the young boys.

"Then we have another small one-day tournament a week later and we end the tour with the Kiama 7s tournament on February 22.

"A tour like this cost us around $40,000 and we want to make sure we make the most of it and our players get as much experience out of this as possible."
