86 teams show interest in Marist 7s

THE 38th Fiji Bitter Marist 7s tournament organisers say the team registration have superseded previous years.

Marist Rugby Club president Lawrence Tikaram in a statement said more than 86 teams had shown interest to participate in the two-day tournament which starts on March 7 at ANZ Stadium.

"This is a good sign that teams and officials have taken heed of our calls to register and pay in full before the closing date of February 19," he said.

"With 20 plus days to go to the tournament, we are totally inundated with telephone calls with more teams wanting to come in."

Tikaram said unfortunately many teams would be turned away again.

"This weekend we will now have to verify all team names and deposits made. However we have some major concerns that some teams have also deposited with no names and if we cannot verify who they are, they will be dropped and again a laxity on team officials when attending to the finer details of team management."

Tournament co-ordinator Koli Korovulavula will now have the task of preparing teams into pools to finalise once all teams are confirmed which will be announced this Friday.
