THE Tokatoka Westfield Barbarians is the top seed for the two-day Martintar 7s which will be held at Prince Charles Park in Nadi on February 28.

The tournament which is offering $3000 for the winner has attracted other big teams like Army, Police, Mala Young Boys, Nawaka and Tale Babas.

The tournament is being organised by the Cawa Chapel to raise funds for outreach programs in the Martintar area.

Tournament co-ordinator Biu Waqaniburotu said their objective was to assist the youths and eliminate poverty.

Waqaniburotu said the sponsors for the tournament would be finalised soon.

"We are waiting for confirmation from Wardens on their participation," he said.

"Martintar is a densely populated area with many youths. With the funds raised, we will hold outreach programs to prevent the youth from venturing into criminal activities and making sure that they have a more family oriented lifestyle."

The winner of the cup competition will receive $3000 while the runner-up will get $1000.

Sevens legend Waisale Serevi has donated rugby balls for the tournament.
