THE Lomaiviti Barbarians rugby sevens club clinched its second Marist International Invitational 7s tournament in Wellington over the weekend.

The Niumaia Cakacaka-captained side defeated the Wellington Provincial side 19-17 in the Cup final after defeating China 28-17 in the semi-final.

Former Fiji under-20 utility back Filimoni Seru Jr, Michael Nabuliwaqa and former Nasinu soccer rep Maciu Tuilau were all part of the victorious side.

Team coach Sekaia Ragata said it was a fitting performance. He said his young players stood up to the test against international teams.

"I brought the team here for exposure," he said. "This is a young team with the exception of some experienced players like Niumaia (Cakacaka) and Michael (Nabuliwaqa) who guided the young players well."

Ragata said the victory was a perfect build-up to the Marist 7s next month.

"Right now, we want to focus on the Red Rock 7s first at the end of the month and then turn our focus to the Marist 7s."

The Marist 7s tournament is scheduled for March 7-8.
