Victory for Tabadamu in Unity 7s

TABADAMU defeated Nasolo Young Boys 17-12 to win the Bure Unity 7s tournament at Gatward Park in Korovou yesterday.

The CK's Ezybuy-sponsored team walked away with $1600 for winning the tournament while Nasolo Young Boys picked up $600.

A total of 16 teams took part in the tournament organised by New Vision 7s organiser Wame Ratadai.

He said the main reason for the tournament was to give exposure to the village teams from the surrounding communities.

"We had big names like Army, Natakala and Police and Wardens was representing Bure from Soa in Ra while Namara came all the way from the interior of Ra and the others were village teams.

"There is very little competition for the village teams in these areas so we brought the game from the big city to these guys so that they can enjoy good competition.

"And from the crowd that had gathered to watch this tournament instead of the Wellington 7s showed that more tournaments need to be organised in the rural communities."

Tabadamu beat Dritabua 12-7 in one semi-final while Nasolo Young Boys beat Duavata Nasilai 10-5 at sudden death in the other.

Police Nausori beat Namara 15-0 to win the plate final.
