NATIONAL Vodafone 7s reps Emosi Mulevoro and Semi Kunatani are expected to feature in the Lomavata 7s at Lautoka's Churchill Park today.

Mulevoro is expected to play a leading role for Army while Kunatani will feature for the Yamacia side as they battle for the top $3000 prizemoney. Other big names expected to feature at the tournament are Marika Vunibaka for West Wardens, Peni Gaunimeke for Police, and Niko Verekauta and Peni Rokodiva for the Wardens.

Tournament official Joji Tuivaga said the participation of these star players would lift the competition standard.

"The tournament has attracted top teams and players from around the country," said Tuivaga.

"The organisers are honoured to have the national sevens players at the tournament. This tournament will be the toughest compared to the last few tournaments."

Tuivaga said it would be difficult to predict the winner because all teams had proven themselves at past tournaments.

"Based on previous performances some of the teams that are likely to win the tournament are Army, Police, Wardens, Natabua, Western Suburbs, Western Wardens, Yamacia and Hurricane Hideaways.

"Sorokoba, Tale Babas and Yasawa Central cannot be ruled out for the top award."

The competition kicks off at 8am.
