ORGANISERS of the Fiji Bitter Marist 7s launched its 3 massive billboards in Samabula, Suva and Nadi at key strategic points for "The Search for Rio" in the countdown to the 38th tournament

In launching the billboards last week president and chairman of the organising committee Lawrence Tikaram said they were honoured to have media support partners such as Go Advertising and Proode Signs to support the event.

"Event's like this cannot be organised without support from our platform of associate sponsors which is a vital ingredient to the success of the tournament."

"The billboards are in partnership with its advertising partners and the committee specifically wants to thank Charles Wakeham and his team for driving this major project for us."

Meanwhile the Marist 7s committee has confirmed partnership with the Fiji National University who will be providing skilled physios to be part of the rugby tournament scheduled for March 7 to 8.

Tikaram said they were fortunate to have such skilled and qualified people in their midst

"Players and spectator safety and welfare are an important element of our tournament and cannot be compromised, and we are fortunate to have the Fiji National University be part of our tournament that have supported us before in providing first-hand relative professional support.

"Seventeen ( 17 ) physios have been made available through Nayacakalou Naibuka from the School of Health Sciences and College of Medicine Nursing &

Health Sciences from the Fiji National University.

"We will also be engaging two tournament doctors as well and for the very first time will be looking at dentists and nurses to be part of the tournament.

Also to be made available during the two-day tournament will be a fully equipped ambulance from the St John Ambulance which is part and parcel of the tournament.
