Yamacia to play in Aussie tourney

THE Yamacia rugby 7s side leaves the country today for Australia where they will compete in two tournaments.

Club president David Dakuitoga said February would be an exciting month for Yamacia.

"Having been approved a temporary work and stay visa for one month in Australia is a blessing," he said.

"Yamacia will compete in the Crescent Head 7s tournament in New South Wales on February 8 and then the Kiama 7s in South Sydney on February 22."

With two of their key players Donasio Ratubuli and Semi Kunatani with the Fiji 7s team in Wellington, the club is aiming to give their unknown players some overseas exposure.

"This is a quick development for Yamacia as it engages players to be more aware of international rugby standards and having to expose their grassroots skills of Fijian rugby."

Dakuitoga thanked their major sponsor Sigatoka River Safari and co-sponsor Tale Investment.

"Australian tour sponsors are Laxco Printery, Serevi and Ocean Groove — an Australian company.

"The club also wishes to acknowledge the help of the Australian Embassy, Ministry of Youth and Sports and its thousands of fans and supporters around Fiji and abroad."
