THE Yamacia rugby side is raring to take to the field this morning against the Port Pirates at the Crescent Head 7s tournament in Australia.

The side has been camping in Coffs Harbour whole of this week and the players are ready for the tournament.

Club president David Dakuitoga told Times Sport from Australia, some of their players would be making their international debut.

With their regular players Donasio Ratubuli and Semi Kunatani representing Fiji at the Wellington 7s tournament, some new players got an opportunity to run on for the side.

"The boys are well prepared for the tournament," Dakuitoga said.

"We are expecting a tough tournament."

The return of former national sevens team member Mosese Mawalu has boosted the side ahead of the tournament.

Dakuitoga said the support of the Fijian community had motivated the players to give their best shot.

"Awesome sign of support by the Australian Yamacia supporters."

A win would see Yamacia face the winner of the match between Lindfield and Southern Districts.

The winner from that match would advance to the quarter-finals. Red Rock and Nabua are the other two Fijian teams that are competing in the tournament.
